Girls on the Run has evolved from a grass-roots concept to an international organization, the heart of the program is the same: inspiring girls to celebrate their unique identities, recognize their inner strength, understand the power they have to make individual decisions and value their connectedness with others.

The core values of the Girls on the Run program are:

  • Recognizing girls’ power and responsibility to be intentional in their decision making

  • Embracing their differences and finding strength in their connectedness

  • Expressing joy, optimism and gratitude through their words, thoughts, and actions

  • Nurturing their physical, emotional and spiritual health

  • Leading with an open heart and assuming positive intent

  • Standing up for themselves and others
