This past semester, students at Los Reyes Elementary and Briscoe Middle School have been participating in the “Girls on the Run” after-school program.
The Girls on the Run mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident by using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The program lessons revolve around educating girls in nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle choices while encouraging positive emotional and social development.
At the end of the program, the girls and their running buddies completed the Girls on the Run 5k event that was held on May 3rd. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum. Crossing the finish line gave the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
