Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run at ALMS

Albert Leonard Middle School partnered with Girls on the Run this Spring. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program that inspires young girls to develop confidence, character, and connections with their peers through fitness. The Middle School component of the program is called Heart and Sole and is run by two trained coaches, Jayna Botensten and Aysha Williams. The program started on March 28th for 6-8th graders and runs for an hour and a half two days a week. The focus of the program is building girls' confidence, respecting themselves while showing compassion for others, team-building skills, nurturing social and emotional competence, and regular strength and conditioning exercises all while training to run a 5K on June 4th.  To culminate the season the team will travel to Rockland Lake State Park to run a 5K with other teams from across the state.  We are really excited about this great new program and eager to see the girls grow and create lifelong healthy habits.
