Girls on the Run Spring, 2020 Registration is Now available

Girls on the Run

Due to the school closures, registration is currently closed.  We are hoping to be able to offer a modified season if schools re-open.

We believe that every girl is inherently full of power and potential. As the leaders of their lives, these are the girls that will change the world.

Girls on the Run inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained volunteer coaches use research based curricula to teach foundational lessons through dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k event.

Registration fee is $145, however, financial assistance is offered based on household income. The sliding scale ranges from $20 to $145. Assistance can be requested as part of your registration. The sliding scale can be viewed at
