Girls on the Run of Hunterdon, Bucks and Warren Counties’ registration for the fall season is now open.
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that inspires girls in third through eighth grade to be joyful, healthy and confident. The volunteer-led program brings together groups of 8 to 15 girls for a 10-week program that encourages personal development, team building and connection to the community.
Girls on the Run of Hunterdon, Bucks and Warren Counties has inspired girls in the community for 26 seasons and has impacted the lives of 8,000 girls. This season, Girls on the Run will be offered at numerous locations in the Hunterdon, Bucks and Warren County areas.
Each team will meet two times a week for 75 to 90 minutes either before or after school and participate in research-based lessons that use dynamic discussions and fun running games to teach life skills. The season will culminate in a 5K event that brings together family, friends and community members to celebrate the girls’ growth throughout the season.
The program fee for the fall season is $175, and scholarship funding is available to those who qualify. The program fee includes registration for the end-of-season 5K event, a program shirt and a Girls on the Run water bottle. Lessons start the week of Sept. 16 (practice day/times vary by location).
