Mavia Haight: Girls on the Run is for Every Girl
Girls on the Run has fun, evidence-based programs that inspire all girls to build their confidence, kindness and decision making skills. Dynamic lessons instill valuable life skills including the important connection between physical and emotional health.
By the time they reach middle school, girls drop out of sports at a rate two times that of their male counterparts.
In a study, the least active Girls on the Run participants increased their physical activity by 40% and maintained that activity level beyond the program’s end.
This year Girls on the Run of Greater Oregon will serve 1,200 girls and nonbinary youth in our state.
Visit gotroregon.org to learn more. Our coach application is now open for spring season. Other opportunities include volunteer days in the office and stay tuned for volunteering at our 5K on May 20th.
Mavia is the Executive Director of Girls on the Run Greater Oregon. She is passionate about experiential learning and how physical activity in a noncompetitive setting can support holistic health. Mavia loves exploring the Pacific Northwest with her husband and seven-year-old twins.
