Girls on the Run is a nonprofit, afterschool program that uses running to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. The positive youth development program is designed to enhance girls' social, emotional and physical fitness skills, through movement. During a 10-week season led by trained volunteer coaches, girls in third through eighth grades develop confidence, connection, character and a sense of community. Each spring and fall season ends with a celebratory 5K, providing the girls with a sense of achievement. Since 2000, Girls on the Run NJ East has served more than 20,000 girls in Morris, Essex, Union, Mercer and Burlington counties.
