Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. The goal of its 10-12 week program, held in schools of Bernalillo and Valencia County, is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event.
