Girls on the Run will be starting at Grand Ridge this spring! We are excited to host this awesome program that is aimed to promote self-esteem in girls. By helping girls set goals and establish a strong value system, we are helping create a generation with a positive attitude about themselves. It is about spending time with one another in an upbeat and supportive environment during the years when girls become vulnerable to societal pressures.
Girls on the Run will also participate in the Girls on the Run 5k run/walk (date TBD). Visit girlsontherun.org for the cost (sliding scale).

Students work in teams of six to prepare for the challenges starting at the school level with the possibility of advancing to the district, regional and city levels.
