Girls on the Run is a program designed for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit program that was created to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident, using a curriculum that creatively integrates running. It contains 20 lessons that combine training for a 5K event with lessons that inspire girls to be better thinkers, problem solvers and to make healthy decisions.
A tremendous partnership is developing with this great organization, with over 40 councils training their coaches and volunteers in CPR with ProTrainings. A big congratulations to the Greater Kalamazoo council who has had over 25,000 girls participate in a 5K event. Tremendous outreach to young girls in their community.
