NEW STUDY DEMONSTRATES THAT GIRLS ON THE RUN TRANSFORMS YOUNG GIRLS' LIVES.

A recent independent study provides compelling evidence that Girls on the Run is highly effective at driving tranformative and last change in the lives of third to fifth grade girls. The program's intentional curriculum places an emphasis on developing competence, confidence, connection, character, caring, and contribution in young girls through lessons that incorporate running and other physical activities. Throughout the course of the ten=week program, girls learn life skills including managing emotions, resolving conflict, helping others and making intentional decisions. It is the combination of the research-based curriculum, trained coaches and a commitment to serve all girls that sets Girls on the Run apart from other after-school programs. 

The Power of Self-Awareness

At Girls on the Run, we believe that there is one simple shared reality that all parents and caregivers have. They want the best for their children. This is why Girls on the Run plays such an important role in the communities it serves. We provide a safe, warm and welcoming place for all girls. We don’t tell girls what to think, we inspire them to realize that they are inherently full of potential with significant gifts to reveal to the world.

Gratitude on the Run

These girls may not understand it now, or even think about it in the future, but they have each taught me something about every single one of the lessons we have discussed; about teamwork, about real beauty, about friendship, about positivity, about compassion, about physically and mentally healthy behaviors, and yes, about gratitude.
