Welcome to YWCA York’s Girls on the Run York, a life-changing, non-profit program for girls in grades 3rd through 8th offered through YWCA York.
We are not currently offering this program due to the COVID-19 restrictions for after-school programs in York County. Check back in December for more information.
Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The 24-lesson Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills, and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
