The Girls on the Run program has been evaluated for impact since 2002. Studies showed improvements in girls’ self-esteem, body image, eating attitudes and physical activity. Findings from a national evaluation showed improvement in confidence, caring, character and connection during the season for girls who had initially scored low on these life skills. 

An independent researcher is currently conducting a study to assess the long-term effectiveness of our program.
