Join CREW DC Friends for a Fun Run
DID YOU KNOW? Girls’ self-confidence plummets when they reach puberty. Only 19% of girls have a positive association with the phrase “like a girl”. Girls on the Run inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Join CREW DC members to participate in this popular 5K walk/run. Runners, walkers, families, strollers, friends and pets are all welcome to join us at this day out for a great cause. The race can also be run virtually.
Girls on the Run of NOVA (GOTR NOVA) envisions a world where every girl knows she has the ultimate power to be her best. It 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. Girls on the Run of NOVA is a 501c3 nonprofit and affiliate of Girls on the Run International, serving approximately 5,000 girls each year at more than 150 sites across Northern Virginia annually.
