Girls On The Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Life skills are taught through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
Third Grade girls at Vestavia Hills Elementary West participate in this after school activity weekly. At the end of the semester, the girls participate in a 5K running event and also raise money for a charity of their choice.
