Attention Parents of 3rd-5th Grade Girls: Girls on the Run Information

Fri, 09/02/2016 - 5:27pm


Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls age eight to thirteen years old. The program combines training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the program are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The girls will meet after-school twice per week for 10 weeks with the season ending 5k to be held on December 3rd in Columbia. Northfield Elementary School will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:15-4:45 PM starting the week of September 18th. Registration is now open! Visit to register.
