Girls on the Run: Inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident

description
Girls on the Run aims to make sure that in the U.S. every girl can achieve her potential and boldly pursue her dreams.

The Problem

Women are raised to keep their heads down and not cause any waves. But this yields a significant confidence gap between men and women. And a growing body of evidence, shows how devastating a lack of confidence can be. Namely, research has shown that success is just as correlated with confidence as it is with competence.

The Solution

Girls on the Run inspires girls to take charge of their life through movement. By a number of independent studies, Girls on the Run has been shown to be highly effective at developing confidence, competence, and connection for its participants. Girls on the Run groups meet twice a week, and at the close of each season, the girls and their coaches complete a 5K road race. The completion of the 5K, gives the girl participants a tangible sense of accomplishment.
