Help Bring Girls On The Run to West Harlem

August 14, 2019

West Harlem Development Corporation is pleased to support Girls on the Run, a successful youth development program that integrates an experience-based curriculum through running. WHDC’s support of the organization will allow residents of West Harlem to take advantage of the
highly effective program that drives transformative and lasting change in the lives of third to fifth grade girls.

The program can be launched by teachers, community members, or parents in consultation with a local school. Girls in the program come together twice each week after school to build athletic and leadership skills – and run a celebratory 5k on December 8! If you’re interested in bringing Girls on the Run NYC to a school near you, visit their new site guide and fill out an application by August 30.
