Girls on the Run registration is now open for the upcoming spring season. The organization is a youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grade and has teams in the Bella Vista, Queen Village, Dickinson Square and FDR Park areas in South Philly.
Girls on the Run’s mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Through safety measures, including mask mandates and physical distancing modifications, it will bring a critical social-emotional learning program to girls across Philadelphia this spring.
Teams of up to 12 girls will meet with trained coaches twice a week for an eight-week season, which begins March 15 for in-person practices, with the option to transition to a virtual program, if necessary. For more information and to register, visit https://www.gotrphiladelphia.org.
