Just found out about Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond:
Welcome to Girls on the Run – a life-changing, non-profit program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
The 24-lesson Girls on the Run Curriculum combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills, and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond is an independent council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 200+ locations across the United States and Canada.
