The girls will be running with a Running Buddy which could be a parent or close friend who will encourage them to keep going until they reach their goal.
Girls on the Run is a 10 week curriculum based program that teaches girls from third to eighth grade to work towards a 5k by providing tips to work toward a goal, and physical based activities they can have fun with while working up to the 5k in the end. it started in 1996 in North Carolina, and has since turned national serving over 200 cities in the U.S..
