Join Girls on the Run New Orleans for the Spring Celebratory 5k!

Girls on the Run New Orleans LogoAt Girls on the Run New Orleans we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.

Think bright colors, tutus, bubbles and the most positive 5k around! Men and women of all ages are invited to celebrate these AMAZING New Orleans girls!
