I work with an organization called Girls on the Run. Their goal is to inspire girls to be happy, healthy and confident by using a fun, engaging curriculum that integrates running. The program teaches girls life skills that focuses on understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. The lessons aim to empower girls to be strong, compassionate and fearless in pursuing their dreams. Each season culminates in an exciting 5k race. Today was race day for the girls! Advertisements
I’m shaking up my routine a bit this spring by working with Girls on the DC, an organization that empowers young girls to achieve life goals through a series of interactive lessons and running. It’s my first season with the organization, and I’m really excited about it.
