Welcome to Girls on the Run® Ontario – We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run Ontario is a positive youth development program which combines training for a non-competitive 5k run/walk with an interactive curriculum to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles of 8-13 year old girls. Our curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviours.
One girl put it this way, “I learned that I am the boss of my brain.” Not only do we get girls (and their coaches and families) moving – we also arm them with the tools necessary to effectively manage many of life’s challenges, including gossip, bullying, establishing healthy friendships and standing up for themselves and others.
Girls on the Run Ontario is a Registered Canadian Charity.
