Girls on the Run

Girls On The Run Logo

A life-changing, non-profit program, Girls on the Run helps school-aged girls learn to be joyful, healthy, and confident through teamwork and physical exercise.

Their mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

What Is Girls on the Run?

Girls on the Run is a recreational program that helps young girls of various ages train for running events by implementing as much activity and movement as possible, such as jogging, skipping, running and basic warm-ups as well as using team building exercises and life skills. This interactive after-school program also addresses different aspects and difficulties of a girl’s life and teaches them how to successfully handle these situations in a healthy way.

Established in 1996, Girls on the Run helps young girls embrace their individuality and learn important skills to help them grow with the help of volunteers in over 200 cities across North America.

It is such an empowering experience for young girls. It is a great pleasure to be a sponsor and a participant in this great initiative for girls. ~Dr. Wirtz
