Girls on the Run inspires girls in grades 3-5 to be joyful, healthy, and confident by using running to teach valuable life skills. Teams of 15-20 girls meet twice weekly after school for 10 weeks. Each season concludes with the girls and their running buddies completing a 5K run. The fall season will start the week of September 17, with the season-ending 5K scheduled for December 1 in Columbia, Maryland. Program registration fee is $175 and includes 5K registration, water bottle, T-shirt, and all program materials. Financial assistance is available—no girl is turned away.
