Girls on the Run® is coming back this fall for another amazing season! Registration opens Sunday, August 24th.
Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls in third to eighth grade. The programs combine training for a 5k (3.1 mile) running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running. The girls will meet after-school twice a week for approximately 10 weeks with the season ending tentative 5k date on December 6th. Starting the week of September 21st, the girls at Fulton Elementary School will meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 – 5:15pm.
