Girls on the Run of North Central WV is a non-profit, physical activity-based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd - 8th grades. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.We hold a spring program from March - May each year in seven North Central WV counties: Barbour, Harrison, Marion, Monongalia, Preston, Taylor and Wetzel. Teams of 8-20 girls meet twice weekly for 10 weeks.
At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
