Welcome to Girls on the Run of Northwest Ohio!
Girls on the Run of Northwest Ohio is an independent council of Girls on the Run International. We are a non-profit organization that is a life-changing character development program for girls in grades 3rd-5th. We are currently serving Lucas and Wood County! Girls on the Run is funded through program fees, donations and grants. We rely entirely on the generous support of local individuals, businesses and organizations.
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement and encouraging role models to help the girls discover the confidence they need in those critical preteen years and beyond! Through interactive activities such as running, playing games and discussing tough topics, the girls learn how to celebrate being their own unique person!
