Girls on the Run Inspires Confidence and Fitness at Tinc


Tinc Road Elementary School is thrilled to offer the Girls on the Run program again! Co-Organizers, Ms. Smith and Ms. Gentle meet twice a week with 12 third to fifth-grade students. This empowering initiative focuses on building confidence, teamwork, and a love for physical activity in young girls. This is the third year Ms. Smith and Ms. Gentle have run the program, but Tinc students have been participating long before that! 

Girls on the Run is a 10-week after-school program that combines interactive lessons with running activities. The goal is to instill life skills such as confidence and perseverance while fostering positive connections among participants.

The program's unique feature is the culmination of a celebratory 5K run, showcasing the girls' physical achievements and instilling a sense of pride. At the 5K run, five Tinc Road students joined dozens of girls from around New Jersey. 

As the girls lace up their running shoes and embark on this empowering journey, the entire Tinc Road community is excited to witness the continued growth, confidence, and camaraderie that the Girls on the Run program brings to these young minds.
