The Power of Positivity!

Instead of engaging in negative self-talk, use these short and simple phrases to help get yourself to the finish line.


At Girls on the Run, we believe that there is one simple shared reality that all parents and caregivers have. They want the best for their children. This is why Girls on the Run plays such an important role in the communities it serves. We provide a safe, warm and welcoming place for all girls. We don’t tell girls what to think, we inspire them to realize that they are inherently full of potential with significant gifts to reveal to the world.

Heart & Sole

Heart & Sole, our program for 6th - 8th graders, will be held in the Spring of 2018! Registration will open in November, 2017 at the same time as Girls on the Run registration.
