Introducing the "Girls on the Run" program – a unique and engaging opportunity for girls in 3rd to 5th grade! This program is not just about running; it's a comprehensive 10-week journey that combines interactive lessons, movement activities, and loads of fun. Designed to enhance physical, emotional, and social skills, Girls on the Run fosters an environment where every participant learns to celebrate her unique self, develops important friendships, and grows in confidence.
Key highlights of the program include a significant 40% increase in physical activity for less active participants, and an impressive 97% of girls reporting learning valuable life skills like managing emotions and conflict resolution. The journey culminates in a celebratory 5K event on May 18, 2024, marking a proud moment of achievement for all participants.
Registration opens with a lottery from January 25 to February 1, 2024, followed by open registration until March 14, 2024, or until teams are filled. With the program starting on February 28, 2024, and a reasonable program fee of $150 (scholarships available), it's an accessible opportunity for all.
