Pure Barre helps women and men build strong bodies and strong minds reinforcing positive self talk that says "I can do this!" Girls on the Run supports this message and works to develop self confidence and inner strength in young women in our community.
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running. We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program (PA-PYD) designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological, and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences. Meeting twice a week, in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through dynamic lessons and running games. Our 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. The program culminates in a non-competitive 5k event that gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement, as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The participation of family, friends and community members in our 5k event expands our effect, inspiring a broader community to value healthy living and support our girls.
