What We Do

Girls on the Run inspires girls to live joyful, healthy, and confident lives through their 10 week physical activity based program. The after-school program is designed to inspire girls of all abilities to recognize and embrace their inner strength. Lessons emphasize the important connection between physical and emotional health. At the end of the program, girls participate in a 5K, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment, setting a confident and goal-oriented mindset into motion. Girls on the Run Greater Charlotte proudly serves Mecklenburg, Gaston, Lincoln, Cleveland, Catawba, and Cabarrus counties.
