GIRLS ON THE RUN SOUTHERN UTAH

The girls follow a fun curriculum that teaches about self-esteem, healthy living, fighting back against society's focus on external beauty and rejecting peer pressure. The 10 week program gives girls the tools to speak out against negativity, and the most important trait, confidence, to succeed in a changing world. With confidence, the girls learn to take risks, find their voice, and radiate power.
