We are a curriculum-based, life-enhancing, character-development program serving girls in the 3rd through 8th grades in Western North Carolina.
Our mission: “We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.”
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 mile) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community. Our current 14-county service area includes: Buncombe, Cherokee, Clay, Jackson, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey counties.
