A team of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls will make new friends and celebrate all that makes them unique!
Emotional intelligence is a key building block of next-generation leadership: Girls on the Run builds these critical skills including confidence, motivation, self-awareness, self-regulation, social skills and empathy.
Each practice consists of a movement-based lesson, games, and a running workout, all from the nationally-recognized Girls on the Run curriculum.

Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is an organization that builds healthy, confident girls! We are actively recruiting volunteer mentors for our spring season starting in March. No prior experience is necessary; we provide the training, curriculum, and materials. No need to be a runner, or even consider yourself athletic to become a coach! All you need is the desire to be a positive role model for a small team of 8-15 girls.
Our 10-week program promotes holistic health outcomes. One or two co-coaches lead each practice, consisting of a movement-based lesson, games, and a running workout, all from the nationally-recognized Girls on the Run curriculum. Girls on the Run is one of only 3 programs recognized by the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a top social-emotional learning (SEL) experience for kids.
At the end of the season, all teams from across our 5-county region come together for a celebratory 5K run/walk event at Quarry Lakes in Fremont. Completing a 5K distance gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
I (Caroline Fisher) have signed myself up as a coach for Girls On The Run here in Woodside for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls. I plan on having sessions after school Tuesdays and Saturdays at my house in Woodside. I am very excited to share our beautiful trails with our girls and hope you will consider this opportunity either as a coach or having your daughter join us.
