Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills 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.

Join us as we host a movie screening of The Empowerment Project: Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things, a film that asks the question "What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail?". The documentary features an all-female film crew who embark on a 7,000-mile cross-country road trip. The filmmakers interview 17 inspiring women from a variety of career fields, including Girls on the Run International founder Molly Barker! Click HERE to watch the movie trailer and HERE to read more about the film, which is recommended for children 11 years old and up.
