At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-4th grade 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.
Girls on the Run is open to 3rd and 4th-grade girls now! We are going to start on March 16th and the program ends on May 29th. We will meet on Mondays and Fridays from 3:30 to 5:00 at the middle school building. 3rd graders will be walked over to the middle school building by a Girls on the Run coach at 3:00. Parents will pick up their child at the middle school building at 5:00. At the end of the program, we will be completing a 5k fun run on May 30th. Girls must be able to attend every session. If they are committed to another after school activity on Mondays and Fridays, they will not be able to join. Currently, there are 15 slots open. It will be a lottery, so I will contact you if your child has been selected. Please register at https://www.gotrchicago.org/
