August 2023 | Girls on the Run


This month, Dyarne ward is investing in Girls on the Run. We will be donating 2% of August sales to support their programming that strengthens third to eighth grade girls’ social, emotional, physical and behavioral skills through running.

Girls on the Run's Programs

  • Girls on the Run, grades 3-5: inspires girls of all abilities to recognize their individual strengths, while building a sense of connection in a team setting. Volunteer coaches facilitate lessons that blend physical activity with life skill development to enable girls to adapt to whatever comes their way. At the end of the season, the team completes a 5K together, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment and sets a confident mindset into motion.
  • Heart and Soul, grades 6-8: meets the unique needs of girls of all abilities in 6th-8th grade. The program considers the whole person – body, brain, heart, spirit and social connection. Heart & Sole offers an inclusive place of belonging, where girls feel supported and inspired to explore their emotions, cultivate empathy and strengthen their physical and emotional health. At the end of the season, all program participants complete a 5K.
