Girls on the Run, Greater Kansas City

The Kao Family Foundation (KFF) has provided a grant to Girls on the Run of Greater Kansas City. Girls on the Run offers programs designed to inspire girls of all abilities to recognize and embrace their inner strength and make meaningful connections with others.  Trained coaches use physical activity and dynamic discussions to build social, emotional and physical skills while encouraging healthy habits for life.  Volunteer coaches facilitate lessons that blend physical activity with life skills development to enable girls to adapt to whatever comes their way. At the end of the season, the team completes a 5K together, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment and sets a confident mindset into motion.
