Girls on the Run of the Bay Area provides after-school running programs for girls ages 8-14 in San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin and San Mateo Counties. Our innovative curriculum focuses on building self-esteem and improving physical and emotional well-being at an early age. Each session incorporates interactive, uplifting games developed to teach the girls a specific life lesson, such as the importance of healthy eating habits, learning to listen and why gossiping is a bad habit. Girls gain a better understanding of how to make healthy decisions, resolve conflict, maintain a positive attitude, build supportive relationships and cooperate in a group. We also train the girls to participate in either a one-mile or 5K (3.1 miles) event during the final week of the program.
Mission: To educate and build confidence in young girls through quality running programs in San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin and San Mateo Counties.
