February 2016 - Girls on the Run
Our Calendar for a Cause for February was Girls on the Run which is a transformational learning program for 8 to 13 year-old girls. They teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. We sponsored their Valentine Soiree and had a ball! Girls on the Run is a North American non-profit program that works to encourage pre-teen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games, culminating in a celebratory 5k run. The organization’s curricula seek to address all aspects of the girls’ development to enhance their physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual well-being while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
