Girls on the Run combines training for non-competitive running events with lessons that help young women to recognize and honor their individual strengths and talents. Lessons inspire the girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices, recognize their gifts, and activate their power. The 12-week program concludes with a celebration of the girls’ success with participation in a non-competitive 5k (3.1 mile) walk/run. Girls on the Run International is a 501c3 organization that operates in more than 150 cities across North America, changing the lives of thousands of girls every year.  Molly Barker, MSW, and four-time Hawaii Ironman triathlete, founded the organization in 1996.
