Girls on the Run is a program that works to encourage girls to develop self respect and healthy lifestyles through interactive lessons and running games, culminating in a celebratory 5k run. The curriculum seeks to address all aspects of the girls’ development to enhance their physical, emotional, mental, and social well being while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. Building Healthy Families typically facilitates two sessions per school year for girls in 3rd – 8th grade.
