So what does Girls on the Run do?
One girl put it this way, "I learned that I am the boss of my brain." Girls on the Run inspires girls to take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms. It’s a place where girls learn that they can. No limits. No constraints. Only opportunities to be remarkable.
Me + Relationships + Community
Meeting twice a week in small teams, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run® coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.
Simple, engaging and extraordinary. The result? Healthy, confident girls who can.
Help us raise funds to bring this transformative program to more girls in the Greater Hartford, Tolland and parts of New Haven.
