Girls on the Run® NYC is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls to change the way they see themselves and their opportunities. Serving nearly 700 preteen girls throughout New York City each year, our innovative health education and wellness program uniquely combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk event with life-changing, self-esteem enhancing lessons that encourage healthy habits and an active lifestyle. We use the power of running to provide girls with the tools to:
1. Celebrate their bodies
2. Honor their voices
3. Recognize their gifts, and
4. Activate their personal power
