Girls on the Run is a life-changing, non-profit prevention program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. With a mission to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living, our 20-lesson curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with health-based lessons that inspire girls to:
- become independent thinkers
- enhance their problem solving skills, and
- make healthy decisions.
All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community. Girls on the Run Sonoma County is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 locations across the United States and Canada.
Spring 2014 teams will be announced by December 15 here.
