Girls on the Run of Stark County is a life-changing, non-profit
prevention program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our
mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem through health education, life-skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training—all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
Girls on the Run of Stark County is an Independent Council of
Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 150+ locations across the United States and Canada.
