Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization that uses the power of running to change the way girls ages 8-13 see themselves and their opportunities. Girls learn to stretch themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and socially through a unique 10 week curriculum that combines self-esteem and character-building lessons with training for a 5K. For many of the girls, this was their first 5K event.
