About Girls on the Run of the Bay Area
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Our unique programs help girls develop confidence by combining training for a 5K race with life skills lessons, such as how to handle peer pressure and bullying, nutrition and healthy living. The program culminates with the Girls on the Run 5K where the girls are joined by their families, volunteers and community runners to celebrate their accomplishments. This school year, we will offer over 100 programs serving 1700 girls! Nearly 90% of the girls in our program receive scholarship to participate!
