Welcome to Girls on the Run
Sutter County
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development
program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons
and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally
prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash
confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Welcome to Girls on the Run! – a life-changing, non-profit program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls
to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running."
The 24-lesson Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to
become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an
active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.

Girls on the Run is an Independent Council of
Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 200+ locations across the United
States and Canada. Locally, the
Soroptimist Club of Marysville/Yuba City brought Girls on the Run to Sutter County in 2008

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 24-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.
