CORNELIUS – Registration begins Jab. 28 for the Bailey Middle School Girls on the Run club, which inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through running.

The group uses a fun, experience-based curriculum that integrates running.

Girls on the Run focuses on building self-esteem and improving emotional and physical health over a 10-week session. Each session is led by trained volunteer coaches who guide and mentor girls through a fun and uplifting curriculum. Coaches teach specific life lessons such as dealing with body image and the media, resisting peer-pressure, making healthy decisions and contributing to the community. Along the way, girls will also train to walk or run in a 5K race on May 4.

Online registration concludes Feb. 8, and the spring season begins Feb. 19.

The Bailey Middle team will meet in room A5 on Mondays and Wednesday from 7-8:30 a.m.
