NEW STUDY DEMONSTRATES THAT GIRLS ON THE RUN TRANSFORMS YOUNG GIRLS’ LIVES

NEW STUDY DEMONSTRATES THAT GIRLS ON THE RUN TRANSFORMS YOUNG GIRLS’ LIVES

A recent independent study provides compelling evidence that Girls on the Run is highly effective at driving transformative and lasting change in the lives of third to fifth grade girls. The program’s intentional curriculum places an emphasis on developing competence, confidence, connection, character, caring, and contribution in young girls through lessons that incorporate running and other physical activities. Throughout the course of the ten-week program, girls learn critical life skills including managing emotions, resolving conflict, helping others and making intentional decisions. It is the combination of the research-based curriculum, trained coaches and a commitment to serve all girls that sets Girls on the Run apart from other after-school programs.

Since 2011, Girls on the Run program had been a big part of Kate’s life, volunteering with both the Nashville and Charlotte chapters. She had previously served as a coach, a volunteer for the girls’ 5Ks, with coaches training and on the Advisory Board. The decision was easy. Now she would become a first time SoleMate.
