"We aim to meet every girl where she is, helping her see her potential before she realizes her own power and providing a space for her to explore, practice and master skill development."
I am extremely honored to be part of the Title IX Girls Running Club Boston Marathon Team. Growing up, pretty much every kid in the neighborhood participated in a sport, whether basketball, soccer, softball, karate, or cheerleading, and we thrived from those activities.
Title IX Girls provides tremendous support to young girls, by providing resources to grow both physically and emotionally. This is done teaching girls "how to navigate their emotional experience, find inner strength, and discover stability within an unstable world."

Title IX Girls Running Club is a community based, tax exempt, educational running club for preteen and adolescent girls. The running club uses the principles of running to strengthen the connections among emotional, psychological and physical health in girls ages 9 to 15.
WHY GIRLS…We think of the whole girl as a multi faceted social, emotional, and physical being who deserves activities that recognize her developmental stage. Our principal program the Whole Girl Workout was created to bridge the divide between a traditional recreational sporting environment and an educational experience of a clinical setting. This unique and comprehensive approach to educating the whole girl in mind, body and spirit uses running as the instrument in which to connect the three.
