    Girls on the Run participates in 5K

    Blackhawk College 5-K Hustle partners with Girls on the Run


    Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program (PA-PYD) designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences.  Over the course of the program girls will:

    • Develop and improve competence, fell confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.

    Such life skills will prevent unhealthy and risky behaviors, such as physical inactivity and negative body image, and promote positive health outcomes (e.g., physical, mental, social and spiritual health).

    MISSION: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

    VISION:  We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

    OUR CORE VALUES: Girls on the Run honors its core values.  We strive to:

    • Recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making
    • Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
    • Express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts
