Our Mission

Fit for Girls empowers girls to experience success and cross finish lines of all kinds!

Our Vision

Fit for Girls exists to improve the overall health and well-being of adolescent girls. Within the context of physical fitness training, girls participate in lessons on a variety of topics such as nutrition, time management, and friendship. With this information and support, girls learn to make healthy choices, set goals, and overcome obstacles while training for a 5k race. Fit for Girls provides participants with the opportunity to use commitment and hard work to build confidence, learn resiliency skills, and experience success as they cross the first of many literal and figurative finish lines.
