Girls on the Run is a physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. A nationally run nonprofit organization, the program teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. CMSRU's program operates in partnership with Wiggins Elementary and works with participating 5th grade girls.
