Girls on the Run is an International non profit that encourages girls in grades 3-5, to live their lives with positive intent while joyfully celebrating themselves.  Through the power of running, girls train for and complete a 5K while learning about important life issues that girls experience as they grow up.  The curriculum includes such topics as making healthy choices, how to deal with bullying, showing gratitude, and strategies for dealing with peer pressure.  Girls on the Run inspires girls to be true to themselves and live free from societal streotypes.  The girls also examine their role in the community and delevop and execute a community service project.
