Girls on the Run of the Greater Chesapeake is a local nonprofit offering after-school empowerment programs designed for 3rd- to 8th-grade girls to build confidence, increase their level of physical activity, and learn essential life skills. The program’s intentional suite of curricula is designed to enhance girls’ social, psychological, and physical skills and behaviors to successfully navigate life experiences through an emphasis on the development of competence, confidence, connection, character, caring, and contribution in young girls. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and completing a celebratory, non-competitive 5K event providing the framework for confidence through accomplishment and to be the author of her story.
