Featured Cause: Girls on the Run


One of my good friends is working for Girls on the Run this summer, and she was bursting with excitement telling me about their mission: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

The idea sprang to life in 1993, when founder Molly Barker took her evening run: "...after years of questioning her self-worth and self-image, Molly found the inspiration that grew into Girls on the Run" (courtesy of website, emphasis mine).

I love how self-worth and self-image are built upon in healthy ways through the activities this program offers!

Watch a video about Girls on the Run:




Check out their website here, and look out for 5K races in your neighborhood!
