Girls On the Run


Join Ridgeview’s Spring Girls on the Run Team

Registration starts January 30th and runs through February 27th (or until the team fills).

Grab your running shoes and water bottles and join Girls on the Run! This 10 week session for girls in the 3rd – 5th grade, educates and prepares girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Using a well-researched curriculum, life lessons are taught through the use of fun interactive games combined with training for a non-competitive 5k race. Topics include: getting rid of negative self-talk, how to deal with bullying, gossip and peer pressure, nutrition, making healthy choices and much more. All girls will run/walk in the season ending 5k event on Saturday, May 21st at 9:00 am at Arrowhead. The season begins Tuesday, March 8th. Ridgeview practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays right after school from 3:45 – 5:00. (Unless there are other school events such as conferences, etc. and then the schedule may fluctuate.) Ridgeview now participates in online registration. (There will be no practices the week of spring break.)
