What is Fit Girls?
A fitness program for girls in 4th and 5th grade that uniquely combines training for a 5k race with reading and community outreach.
Fit Girls have healthy bodies.
Running and walking are easy, inexpensive forms of exercise that strengthen a variety of muscles including the cardiovascular system. Whether as an individual sport or a social activity, running and walking promote better physical and mental health. Our approach to exercise is non-competitive, and each girl is encouraged to find a pace that is comfortable for them. EVERYONE who participates is a winner!
Fit Girls have healthy minds.
Reading helps us learn and grow, exposing us to new ideas and new worlds. A good book is more than just entertainment – it can inspire, motivate and comfort. By introducing girls to meaningful books and engaging stories, Fit Girls helps young women gain a deeper appreciation for themselves, their communities, and their unlimited potential.
Fit Girls have healthy hearts.
We exercise our hearts when we care, share, help and listen. Participating in charitable activities allows us to demonstrate our care and concern for others. Learning about the mission and contributing to the financial goals of a charity enables us to feel and see the value of generosity and the benefits of kindness. It is both powerful and rewarding to realize that we can help make the world a better place. The girls show kindness to their teammates by supporting and cheering for each other at the workouts.
