Review for Girls on the Run of the Triangle Inc, Durham, NC, USA
My ten year old is getting ready to start her THIRD season with Girls on the Run. She participated once as a third grader, once as a fourth grader, and now she is participating as a fifth grader. She was insistent that we sign up again this fall, no matter how busy she was with other extra-curricular activities. She enjoys the build up to running a 5K, but better yet, she has really soaked up the valuable lessons taught through the program. The other day, she reminded me that it is not what you look like on the outside, but what you are on the inside that counts. I asked her where she learned that, and she responded, "Girls on the Run, of course." I am constantly amazed at the maturity she shows when faced with the usual social rigors of late elementary school, and I feel quite confident that the lessons learned at Girls on the Run influence and really drive her thoughts and decisions. Girls on the Run has been a blessing for her, and I highly recommend it to any young girl, no matter how seemingly confident she is. The program really reinforces the positive thoughts and behaviors that we want for our young girls so that they can grow into confident and happy young ladies!
