FREE screening of "Finding Kind" ~ September 15th, 7 p.m.
Two girls packed their bags and traveled across America in a mini-van with their mothers to interview hundreds of females about the “mean girl” phenomenon. As Lauren and Molly combine their experiences and passion to uncover the truth within Girl World, the girls learn about themselves, females, the truth behind the issue and our cultures influence. The journey is packed with hysterical moments as the girls attempt to conquer the road and everything America has to offer. While there are plenty of fun moments, their emotional roller coaster around the country reveals raw and personal stories from girls that will shock you to your core. With the goal of establishing a national school program for girls, Lauren and Molly hope to put an end to the hate and FIND KIND. >> more information

thirteen years strong thanks to a vision and long time supporters
In 2002 our chapter founder Shari Kunz read about the Girls on the Run program in Runner's World and decided she wanted to show what the power of running can bring to girls in the Wood River Valley. And thanks to donors and sponsors, many who have supported the program since it's inception, the program has served over 1300 girls in 12 years. From simple actions to immensely powerful gifts, find out how you can help us to continue to inspire our young women!
Athletes using the power of their personal goals to make a difference
Solemates is the fundraising leg of Girls on the Run. Male and female athletes pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon, completing a triathlon or cycling event, or even doing our first 5k or 10k, to raise money for Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley. A team of 12 women will be choosing to sweat together, sleep in awkward places, and run under the starts of bear country this August at the Grand Teton Relay. Find out how you too can use the power of your racing to make an impact!
