Girls on the Run is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls in third through eighth grade. The programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry. our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The girls will meet after school twice a week for 10 weeks with the season ending 5K to be held on Saturday, May 30th., in Howard County, MD. Mount View Middle School will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:45 starting the week of March 16th. To register your daughter, go to www.gotrcentralmd.org.
