Girls on the Run

  • Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-15 girls, we teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.

    Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result — making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can accomplish their goals!

    Advisors for 2022 are Joy Khatib and Leah Khatib and the season runs from April  5, 2022- June 5, 2022. Check this page for updates or contact Joy Khatib at jkhatib@lew-port.com  for any questions regarding this amazing program!
