Girls on the Run is a program for girls in the third through fifth grade and the sixth through eighth grade to participate in an after-school program. This program is designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength.
The lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Each school discusses body image, self-esteem, bullying, gossiping and peer pressure among other topics. Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a healthy life.
