Girls on the Run Returning to Cherry Crest!

Girls on the Run Returning to Cherry Crest!
The Girls on the Run Spring 2024 Season is right around the corner and we have limited spots available on the Cherry Crest team!

Girls on the Run is so much more than running. 3rd through 5th grade participants will have fun, make friends, increase their physical activity levels, and learn important life skills. Trained and caring coaches lead participants through interactive lessons and movement activities that help to increase their self-confidence, develop healthy relationships, and feel good about themselves, inside and out. In fact, 97% of participants said they learned critical skills to manage emotions, resolve conflict, help others, or make intentional decisions. Check out a quick informational video here: Girls on the Run Overview.

Meeting twice per week after school, the season lasts 8 weeks and runs from the week of March 25th through the week of May 20th with a celebratory 5K fun run at Renton Memorial Stadium to cap off the season. Meetings take place at Cherry Crest and will be on Mondays and Thursdays, 2:30-4:00 pm.

Learn more and register your child today at www.gotrpugetsound.org!

*Partial and full scholarships are available to any family in need. Any reference to “girls” includes gender-expansive and non-binary youth.
