Girls on the Run of NOVA is now registering girls in 3rd through 8th grade for their unique, curriculum-based after school programs; Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole. Both programs offer physical activity-based positive youth development with a focus on increasing self-perception, learning to respond to oneself and to others with care, creating positive connections with peers and adults, and making a meaningful contribution to the greater community. Each team is led by trained Volunteer Coaches who guide and mentor participants through a rich, ten-week season. At the end of the season, teams and families from across the region will come together for a celebratory 5k event. By offering a proven curriculum that creatively integrates running, Girls on the Run of NOVA supports girls in developing the confidence and character they need to become strong, healthy women.
In Reston, Girls on the Run programming will be available at Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Dogwood, and Forest Edge schools.
Registration is available on the Girls on the Run of NOVA website until September 19th.
Program discounts are available for active duty and retired military families as well as for families registering two or more siblings. Financial aid is available based on household income. More information about the program, fees, and registration can be found at www.gotrnova.org.
