Girls On The Run has a simple mission: Confidence through accomplishment. Each session comes to an end with a joyful and fun non-competitive 5K. It gives girls a tangible sense of confidence to be the author of her story. Smoker Craft has been supporting Club activities for more than 23 years.
Girls On The Run helps third through fifth grade girls to build confidence and other life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and physical activity. Lessons focus on building social and physical skills while encouraging healthy habits for life. The research-based curriculum includes three parts: Understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and recognizing how we shape the world at large.
2022 Season Kicks Off
Members at the Goshen Club are getting prepared for Girls On The Run. Third through fifth grade girls start each session with a lesson to help build the team. They then do drills to get them into shape for the Girls On The Run event later in the spring.
The girls are having a great time interacting with their volunteer coaches and each other! It’s great to see their team spirit and the work they’re putting into achieving their goals!
The program is designed to build confidence and other life skills through interactive lessons and physical activity. Lessons focus on building social and physical skills while encouraging healthy habits for life.
Goshen Club members treated to new shoes
Thanks to Fleet Feet in Mishawaka and Girls On The Run, the team from Goshen Club was outfitted with new running shoes! Each girl had her feet measured with the store’s electronic technology and then was custom fitted with shoes to make their running safe and efficient. What a great way to ensure success in the program!
