CORNELIUS – Registration for Bailey Middle School’s Girls on the Run program begins the week of Jan. 28, 2013.

The 10-week program aims to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that integrates running. Through interactive activities, such as running, playing games and discussing important issues, participants learn to celebrate being girls by building self-esteem and improving emotional and physical health.

Throughout the program, girls also train to walk or run in a 5K event that happens each season.

Online registration ends Feb. 8 and the program begins the week of Feb. 19. Bailey Middle’s team will be in Room A5 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-8:30 a.m. The Girls on the Run 5K takes place May 4.
