Girls On The Run


The Greater Des Moines YMCA is excited to kick off their Fall 2015 Girls on the Run of Polk County season on September 7!  Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grade.  We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games.  The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event.  The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.  This season we will host approximately 30 sites and reach 450 girls!  For ways to get involved please visit
