Girls on the Run is coming to Madrona this spring! Girls on the run is a 10 week program for third through fifth grade. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:30. The program begins in March after our Madrona play is completed. The program encourages girls to recognize their individual strengths and celebrate connections with others. Each season, girls gain a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them, the value of teamwork and healthy relationships and how they can have a positive impact on the world. Girls also make a meaningful contribution to their community through a team-organized Community Impact Project. Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation for fitness and healthy habits and teach life skills including treating others with care, practicing gratitude and managing emotions. Each season culminates with a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event provides girls with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age.

We also need one more coach: It is a great way to get in shape and support the program while training to run a 5K.
