Girls on the Run is starting up at FRES for girls in 3rd-5th grade!
Running is a great way to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Over a period of 10 weeks, girls will participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique.
Practices are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:45-5:00pm at FRES beginning Sept. 20 and running through November. The cost is $150, and registration is limited to the first 20 girls. The program culminates in a 5K run in Columbia. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible, and teaching girls that they can.
Girls interested in joining the program can sign up now!
