Heart & Sole is Girls on the Run’s program for middle school girls. Heart & Sole creates a positive, structured space for middle school girls to learn about themselves, explore new ideas, cultivate empathy, strengthen connections and develop life skills that will help them as they move through adolescence and beyond.
The Heart & Sole curriculum is rich with themes girls can relate to, addressing the whole girl — body, brain, heart, spirit and social connection — and building important life skills.
This 10-week program is accessible to all girls regardless of athletic ability or fitness level. The season culminates with the Girls on the Run 5K celebratory race in Somerville on Sunday, November 18.
We believe that every girl can embrace who she is, can define who she wants to be, can rise to any challenge, can change the world.
