Welcome to Girls on the Run! Girls on the Run of the Treasure Coast is a life-changing, non-profit program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
The 24-lesson Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
The dynamic 12 week program combines training for a 5k (3.1 mile) running race with education and interactive discussions about critical issues that will affect pre-teen girls as they reach adolescence. Trained coaches teach life lessons to girls through fun and clever running games and workouts.
Our goal is that girls completing the program are physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger and better prepared to overcome the challenges and pressures of adolescence and beyond.
Girls on the Run is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 chapters across the United States and Canada.
Girls on the Run is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run of the Treasure Coast depends on donations to help fund our generous scholarship program for disadvantaged girls right here in the Treasure Coast. It is our mission to bring the Girls on the Run curriculum to any girl on the Treasure Coast that wishes to participate, regardless of ability to pay.
