Girls On The Run: Heart & Soul Program
SPONSORED BY GIRLS ON THE RUN
Registration will open for the spring session soon for the Girls on the Run/Heart & Sole program at Herndon MS. By using a curriculum that creatively integrates running with life lessons, Girls on the Run empowers girls to develop the confidence and character they need to become strong and healthy young adults.
The standard program fee is $185, but we also offer military and sibling discounts, as well as financial assistance available for all families. No families will be turned away because they cannot afford it! For more information, go to the Girls on the Run of NOVA website (www.gotrnova.org) or contact Mr. Fuller.
