“One of the biggest problems facing women and girls is self-esteem. Girls on the Run encourages my girls to have confidence in themselves through a fun, non-competitive program. I’ve already seen a change in my youngest daughter’s attitude about herself.”

A Program Fund grant supported Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa’s efforts at schools in Linn County. The program is volunteer-driven and aims to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
