Girls on the Run Palm Beach
Girls on The Run Palm Beach, a branch of the international organization that serves more than 80,000 third- to eighth-grade girls across more than 190 cities, inspires gals with innovative programs designed to build their self-confidence and foster a healthy lifestyle, culminating in a 5K running event.
