Girls on the Run Sonoma County
Girls on the Run is an after-school program for third through fifth grade girls that uses the power of exercise to focus on building self-esteem and improving emotional and physical health. Girls are empowered with a greater self-awareness, sense of achievement and a foundation in team building to help them become strong and confident young women. Through interactive activities, running, playing games, and discussing important issues, girls learn how to celebrate being girls.
Upon completion of the program, the girls learn lessons that apply to real life and have a set of “tools” to deal with peer pressure and other uncomfortable situations so they can live their lives according to their own values.
The mission of Girls on the Run is "to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living."
