Project Type: Girl Power
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program that inspires 3rd through 8th grade girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. While training for a 5k in June, we teach the girls to embrace who they are, to define what they want to be, to rise to any challenge and that they can change the world.
This is my third season volunteering as a coach and I’ve loved every minute of it. Each season I've enjoyed meeting enthusiastic and caring young girls and watch their confidence, self-esteem and physical health grow through the 10 week program. I’m hoping this fundraiser will provide scholarships for girls who are unable to afford to participate in Girls on the Run.
