“Girls on the Run – DC is an affiliate council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary, Ironman triathlete. Today, there are nearly 160 locations across the U.S. & Canada, with new locations added each year.  Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond.” (DC GOTR)

Project Fitness is a concept that prompts physical fitness and exercise as a healthier lifestyle choice. We create awareness around health and fitness options while assisting individuals in maximizing their overall fitness goals through aerobic, endurance, flexibility, and resistance training exercise and education.

We promote lifestyles that generate social movement in which fitness serves as both a preventative tool and a solution to many health problems that are prevalent in our community. We believe that determining personal needs and goals are the first steps in working towards a healthier future.
