What is Girls on the Run?
Girls on the Run is a life-changing learning program for girls in grades 3-8. The program combines training for a 5K (3.1 mile) running event with healthy living education. The program instills self-esteem and strong values through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and community.
This spring we will introduce the program to Cab students for the first time. We will open up registration to 6th grade girls. The program will have two coaches with a team maximum of 14 students.
If we get a strong interest for next spring we will open up the program to 6th and 7th grade girls and have two teams.
Please visit our website www.GirlsOnTheRunDE.org for registration and details about the program. Registration opens February 22 online.
