Welcome to Heart of Missouri Girls on the Run – a life-changing, non-profit prevention program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is “to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.”
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
Heart of Missouri Girls on the Run of is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 150 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
