Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Girls Clubs

Mission: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experienced-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We envison a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We strive to recognize our power and responsibility, to be intentional in our decision-making; to embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness; express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions; to nurture our physical, emotional and spiritual health; to lead with an open heart and assume positive intent; and to stand up for ourselves and others.

Programs: Educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Volunteer role models lead participants through a ten-week program where they use a well-researched and scientifically evaluated life skills curriculum to support all aspects of girls' development - their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons include fun running games and experiential activities that help girls learn to create healthy habits, make positive choices, express themselves, and serve as leaders in our community. The program culminates in a non-competitive 5k event which gives girls a chance to shine and an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. Girls complete the program with a stronger sense of identity, a greater acceptance of themselves, a healthier body image and an understanding of what it means to be a part of a team.
