Girls on the Run helps girls take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms. We teach girls that there are no limits and no constraint to whom and what they can be - and there are so many opportunities to be REMARKABLE. We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what's important to them. Then we look at the role of teams and healthy relationships. And, finally, we explore how girls can positively connect with and shape the world. We believe that life-changing experiences can be fun too so laughter is also a big part of what our girls, families, and coaches experience.
We weave running into our 10 week program by training the girls to complete a 5k celebration run. We use this activity to inspire and motivate girls to embrace lifelong health and fitness. The girls build confidence through accomplishment! At each season's conclusion, the girls complete a 5k running event. This culminating celebratory event is the moment when the girls realize that the seemingly impossible IS possible.
Girls on the Run International has over 200 councils in North America that have served over 600,000 girls since 1996. Girls on the Run of Coastal Georgia began with less than 50 girls with our first programs in 2006.We currently serve more than 700 girls annually and we continue to grow each fall and spring season. Our 150+ volunteer coaches and running buddies who give their time and talents each season are changing the face of our community now and forever
