About Us

The mission of Girls on the Run is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through an intentional curriculum that creatively integrates running. With over 210 councils nationwide, Girls on the Run is a truly unique physical activity-based, positive youth development program for young girls in 3rd to 8th grade.  


The Girls on the Run program provides a safe and interactive way to learn about healthy living which includes an introduction and education onimportant topics such as goal-setting, cooperation, healthy decision-making, and self-respect, while training for a 5K event.  The innovative curriculum teaches girls to listen and open up while also encouraging them to commit to a healthy lifestyle and harness the inner strength that they possess.  Our important mission is accomplished by giving girls the tools to make positive choices for a healthy body and mind, while reducing the many risks they face today.


Girls on the Run believes that all girls and communities should have access to our programs. We strive to eliminate barriers to participation, to continue creating programming that engages all communities, to be intentional about staff and volunteer diversity, and to promote a culture of inclusion across the organization.
