“There is a tremendous need for Girls on the Run. Studies show that 3rd – 8th grade is a critical period of time for girls. Fifty percent of girls ages 10-13 experience bullying such as name calling and exclusion at a time when peer relationships become more central to their lives, girls’ self confidence begins to drop by age nine, physical activity levels decline starting at age 10 and continue to decrease throughout adolescence, and lastly, physical activity is a key indicator of self esteem in girls.” – Lauren Pietrek, Girls on the Run Rockies, Event & Marketing Manager.
