“Girls on the run of Northwest Indiana inspires all girls to build confidence and make intentional decisions, while fostering care and compassion for self and others.” The girls in this program learn confidence, character, care, connections and competence. When these life skills are developed and strengthened, girls can thrive and develop the final skill of contribution. There are two programs: Girls on the Run for grades 3-5 and Heart and Sole for grades 6-8. There are also Junior Coaches for girls ages 16-18. The Girls on the Run program encourages girls of all abilities to recognize their individual strengths and celebrate connections with others. The curriculum consists of both physical activity and skill development, which gives the girls the ability to adapt to whatever comes their way. The Heart & Sole program meets the unique needs of middle school girls and considers the whole girl: body, brain, heart, spirit and social connection. It is believed girls this age need an inclusive place where they fell supported and inspired to explore their emotions, cultivate empathy and strengthen their physical and emotional health. Finally, the Junior Coaches find community, become a leader and make an impact on the next generation of girls.
The members of Mission felt extremely passionate about supporting Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana and made a monetary donation of $500.00 at their January meeting. This type of program is needed now more than ever. Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana believes, “every girl is inherently full of power and potential and by knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who will change the world.”
