This 7-week program innovatively weaves training for a 5K run with lessons that empower girls to celebrate
their bodies, honor their voices and embrace their gifts.
A More Than Pink day consists of 50 minutes of a fun fitness activity and 90 minute focus on a life lesson. This
7-week program meets 3 days per week. Topics include: self-worth, body image, nutrition, healthy relationships, cyber safety and more.
More Than Pink Goals include:
• To help girls grow and develop physically, mentally, and socially with local community support.
• To empower girls to be true to themselves-at home, school, self-image, friends, and activities. Provide resources and tools to help them not succumb to peer pressure, live with less stress, and become who they want to be.
• To measure fitness goals throughout the 7-week program.
Each girl will see their ability to improve fitness levels and increase knowledge and awareness of how important fitness is to one’s health.
The program builds throughout the summer and culminates in the More Than Pink Celebratory 5K Run.
Community partners and supporters join the girls in this fun run to celebrate the conclusion of the program and the growth in empowerment and inspiration.
More Than Pink operates with support from many community partners. Strong female community leaders volunteer to speak to the girls about their journeys and roles. A variety of organizations and individuals sponsor scholarships for girls who cannot afford to attend and many people join us in our 5K to show their support for the girls.
You can view our video and see the real life impact on our participants. If you are interested in more information or would like to volunteer or sponsor a girl please email Teri Wermager or call 507-460-1704.
