Fit Girls is a non-competitive fitness initiative for Grade 4 and 5 girls that inspires active lifestyles, friendships, personal growth, and the confidence that comes from working toward and achieving goals. Fit Girls is guided by a curriculum developed by a marathon running librarian that is being used all over the country (www.fitgirls.org).
 

Fit Girls is coached by parent volunteers and is similar to Girls on the Run, but has a reading and community service component. The goal is forward motion - running, jogging, walking...non-competitive.
