For this month's installment of Wee Women Wednesdays, we are SO excited to introduce you all to Girls on the Run. This after school program with different courses aimed at girls between 3rd and 8th grades, creates fun curriculums that focus on "understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large."

But along with these lessons the girls also learn the joy of movement and at the end of every program these awesome girls get to complete a 5K run. We love the idea that a program can help girls understand how everything in our bodies is connected and that working the body goes hand in hand with working the mind.

Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The results are the same—making the seemingly impossible, possible.
