Girls on the Run Saint Louis
Since 2002, Girls on the Run St. Louis has served over 70,000 girls using our physical-activity, positive youth development program, the only one ot its kind in our region. The program integrates physical activity and life skills, maximizing outcomes for participants. Girls on the Run St. Louis partners with over 400 local schools and community organizations across 23 counties in easter Missouri and western Illinois to serve girls in 3rd through 8th grade. Girls on the Run inspires girls of all abilities to recognize their individual strengths, while building a sense of connection in a team setting. Volunteer coaches facilitate lessons that blend physical activity with life skill development to enable girls to adapt to whatever comes their way. At the end of the season, the team completes a 5K together, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment and sets a confident mindset into motion.
