Girls On The Run, Ontario- GTA
Girls On The Run uses interactive curriculum and running to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. The program also addresses aspects of girl’s development including, physical, emotional, mental and social well-being – providing the tools to make positive decisions and avoid risky adolescent behavior.
With a grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation for the next 3 years Girls On The Run will be offered for girls without financial means at 10 schools in the Toronto area. These young women with diverse athletic abilities will have the opportunity to experience running, and become empowered with life skills and confidence.
This three year commitment ensures the program’s effectiveness and long term sustainability to create real change.
