More Than Pink is a program designed for girls who have completed third through sixth grade to empower themselves and each other. This 6-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 athletic types are welcome. A More Than Pink day consists of 60 minutes of physical activity, a Topic Talk lesson, and group time, and topics include self-worth, body image, nutrition, puberty, peer pressure and more. Strong female role models from our Community lead our Topic Talks.
