MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY – MEETS BOTH DAYS 

Girls on the Run
3:15 to 4:30
$170 to Girls on the Run
$50.00 to Instructors

So… What is Girls on the Run?
Stretch yourself – physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.  Girls will be inspired to a lifetime of self-respect and a healthy lifestyle through an innovative program that combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk race with a fun, health education lesson plan.  This program promotes individual achievement and self –confidence.  Girls gain self-esteem and learn healthy lifestyle habits while training for a 5K run/walk race.

What if I don’t like to run?
We use the term “running” loosely – girls can run, hop, skip, speed walk or dance towards their goals.  The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry.
