Girls on the Run is a life changing, non-profit prevention program for girls in the 3rd through the 8th grade.
Our mission: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
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.
Girls on the Run serving Iredell and Rowan Counties is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 160 locations across the United States and Canada.
