Girls on the Run: Combining Social, Emotional, and Physical Learning

Girls on the Run is not just another athletics club. The research-based eight to ten-week program incorporates social, emotional learning through physical activity for elementary-aged girls across DFW. Each lesson teaches an aspect of social-emotional learning with topics like respect for your body, embracing differences in people, and expressing joy and gratitude. Every week the physical engagement element increases and at the end of the program, there is an area-wide celebratory 5K, complete with tutus and glitter.
