Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. Girls on the Run NYC is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.


I realized it wasn’t about the speed or how fast you run...it was about the strength to finish.
