Heart & Sole

Last year Girls on the Run launched a new program, Heart & Sole (H&S), to meet the unique needs of middle/junior high school girls. Volunteer coaches meet with teams of 8-15 girls to teach them life skills. After piloting H&S in one school in fall 2015, two more schools were added in spring 2016, four schools will be added in fall 2016, and plans for 2-4 more schools in 2017. This grant will support adding new schools by funding full or partial scholarships for girls in H&S and supporting coach training.
