More Than Pink is a program designed for girls who have completed grades three through six to empower themselves and each other. This six-week summer program innovatively weaves training for a 5k run with lessons that empower girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices and embrace their gifts. All types of athletes are welcome. A More Than Pink day consists of 60 minutes of physical activity, a themed discussion lesson and group time, and topics include self-esteem, body image, nutrition, puberty, peer pressure and more. Strong female role models from our community lead our thematic discussions.
