Paving the Way for a Stronger Generation
This year, Diva Dash has teamed up with Girls on the Run, an empowerment program that gives girls in 3rd–8th grade the skills and experiences to navigate their world with confidence and joy. This year Girls on the Run will serve its one-millionth girl, and with your help they can serve a million more.
Make a difference in your community and register your Diva Dash team for the Girls on the Run SoleMates program that provides an opportunity to raise money for Girls on the Run while training for an athletic event of their choice, like Diva Dash. Each year, our SoleMates raise critically needed funds that ensure our councils are able to serve more girls in their communities.
Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident.
How Girls on the Run works:
Meeting twice a week in small teams, Girls on the Run teaches girls life skills through engaging lessons and fun movement activities. The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and helps each girl understand and celebrate herself, value healthy relationships, and realize her power to impact the world!
Why it matters!
Girls today sort through countless messages about their worth… their image… their abilities. Girls on the Run helps empower them to be the authors of their own stories. The transformation is unmistakable. It’s the light of discovery within each girl as she starts to understand and activate her limitless potential. Our girls’ families see it in girls that are more joyful, healthy and confident. Their teachers see it in girls that are willing to share their thoughts or stand up for themselves and others.
Up and running!
Running is used to inspire the girls and to encourage lasting health and fitness. At the conclusion of each program cycle, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event that provides them with a lifelong memory of accomplishment.
The result? Healthy, confident girls who CAN!
