Girls on the Run Napa & Solano

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. Over 1,000 girls are empowered each year, most of whom come from economically disadvantaged families.

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 65 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.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Donate to help fill a rewards’ bucket:  fun stickers, beads, pipe cleaners, nail polish, shoe tags.
  • Volunteer at 5K to make it fun and positive by hosting a cheer station with friends.
  • Purchase a gift card at Oriental Trading, Target or Walmart.
  • Purchase Luna Bars to provide a healthy snack.
  • Wear your favorite hero outfit and volunteer to be a SHERO face painter or Defender Hair Sprayer at 5K.
  • Play a musical instrument for the 5K participants.


I really loved the messages and info you guys sent during the fire. Thank you. [My daughter] really loves your program.
