Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run

Date & Time:
Repeats every week every Monday and every Thursday until Thu Nov 15 2018 except Thu Oct 11 2018, Mon Nov 12 2018.
Thu, 11/15/2018 - 2:30pm to 4:00pm
Location: Room Q- Ms. Espinosa's classroom

www.girlsontherunrockies.org

Girls on the Run is a place where all girls can be themselves.  We stretch ourselves physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.  We have an innovative program that combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk race with a fun, health education lesson plan.  This program promotes individual achievement and self-confidence.  Girls gain self-esteem and learn healthy lifestyle habits while training for a 5k run/walk race.

What if I don’t like to run?

That’s ok!  We use the term “running” loosely and want girls to just be themselves and have fun.  Girls can run, hop, skip, speed walk or dance towards their goals.  The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth and cooperation instead of rivalry.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH
