Girls on the Run is a lot more than just a running program!
We are a curriculum-based, life-enhancing, prevention program serving girls in the 3rd through 8th grades in Western North Carolina. We are a non-profit organization with a mission of "educating and preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living."
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training - all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community.
Join them for the New Balance Girls on the Run 5k on Saturday May 23, 2009 at 10am at Biltmore Park. Register online at gotrwnc.org
