Girls on the Run Napa & Solano

What They Do:

Empower healthy girls. Combine life-skills curriculum with experiential activities, engaging talks, and running or just moving. Give tools for choosing positive over negative self-talk, movement over sedentary lifestyle, satisfaction over negative body image, and healthy friendships over destructive relationships. 1,100 girls annually are empowered, focusing on low-income households (75%) and diverse ethnicities (73%).

Women leaders volunteer and use nationally researched curriculum. This includes lessons on visualization, expressing feelings with “I” statements, cultivating an attitude of gratitude, healthy eating, exercise, bullying prevention, and emphasizing that beauty is inside-out.

Small groups of 8 to 13-year-old girls meet twice a week for ten weeks in the spring and fall at 60 school sites. Girls experience the gift of giving through a community project and the power of achievement by finishing a non-competitive 3.1 miles/5K run.

Testimonial:

A father shared that the impact has been very positive for both his daughters and that they learned a lot. In particular, his 8-year-old uses communication strategies of reflection to help her at school and deal with emotional situations. The tools she learned are shared with her teachers and counselors. She also has the medal that she earned from the 5K in her special box, to remind her of her major accomplishment.
