Thank you for supporting your daughter’s interest in our FAB Girls 5K Challenge Program (grades 6-8). The goal of our program are two-fold: (i) to encourage youth girls to become more physically active and engage in healthy living, and (ii) to help develop goal setting skills that can be used to achieve any future goal. Our ultimate goal is to inspire youth girls to ‘dream big, live big’ by providing them with the skills and the confidence to live an empowered life.
Our programs are free and run from March to June each year. FAB Girls and volunteer coaches meet once a week for 90 minutes. Each 90-minute session includes a meet and greet and ice breaker, warm up, running drills, games, cool down, and snack and goal setting discussion. Additionally, throughout the 12 weeks FAB Girls and coaches have the opportunity to participate in 3-4 running events.
Our 2022 FAB Girls 5K Challenge Program is planning on returning to an in-person one starting the week of March 28, 2022! We are back at our locations on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening from 6-7:30pm. We are excited to welcome 150 FAB girls for 2022!
