Congratulations to Girls on the Run Dayton for receiving a $2,000 Community Support Grant from The Centerville-Washington Foundation! The grant was awarded in April 2020 and will be used for the Centerville Washington Township Girls on the Run Growth Initiative.
The Girls on the Run program "inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind." This is achieved through the building blocks and skills of a ten-week program. These skills include: Confidence, Character, Care, Connections / Cooperation, Competence and Contribution. During the ten-week program, trained coaches lead, inspire, and work with girls in grades 3-8 to "develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness."
At the end of the program, the girls make a positive impact on their community by participating in a service project. Also, a culminating event showcases a young girl's readiness (both physically and emotionally) to complete a 5K run. This is really something to celebrate!! You are all winners as part of the Girls on the Run program!!
