More than a Running Program
Girls' self-confidence plummets when they reach puberty.
Only 19% of girls have a positive association with the phrase “Like a Girl.”
Our Program in Action
Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
