Heart of Missouri Girls on the Run
Heart of Missouri Girls on the Run is a positive youth empowerment program that integrates physical activity with lesson that build character and leadership in young girls in grades 3-5 and 6-8. Using an outcomes based curriculum, girls engage in activities that teach them how to appreciate themselves and others and how to deter and deal with bullying, negative body image, gossip and other common problems faced by girls of this age. We creatively integrate running as part of our program to help girls develop a healthy sense of body, mind and spirit and as they progress through the 10 week program they train toward running a celebration 5k.

Liz began Girls on the Run a little shy and reluctant to participate in the running portion of the program. Through the season she began to blossom in both areas, contributing to group discussions and engaging in the practice runs more enthusiastically. When she arrived for the 5k she had one goal in mind - to complete the race. And complete the race she did! After all of the other girls had crossed the finish line Liz was still on the course, committed to finishing. About an 1/8 of a mile from the finish line her teammates spotted her and several of them ran out to meet her. Together, Liz and her teammates finished the race!
