Girls On the Run of the Bay Area
There's nothing quite like the feeling of flying across the pavement as your feet pound out the rhythm of running. With each jog they take, runners build up strength and stamina—not to mention confidence. Girls on the Run of the Bay Area works to build that confidence in young girls with recreational running programs that serve more than 1,000 girls aged 8–13. The programs meet in small groups twice a week for 10 weeks. Enthusiastic coaches engage the girls in running-based workouts with their peers, and they also address other issues that may affect the girls’ lives, such as nutrition, gossip, and standing up for themselves. At the end of the 10-week session, the girls gather for a noncompetitive 5K running event.
