Girls on the Run of Snohomish County is a local non-profit organization that using running and active movement to teach girls and gender-expansive youth in grades 3-8 to be healthy, joyful, and confident. We offer an afterschool program every spring that runs March through June at schools and community sites throughout Snohomish County and a summer day camp (for kids in grades 3-5). Our program addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and social health of kids at a critical stage of development.
Who We Are
The Y is a cause-driven organization focused on three key areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We believe a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. Our programs, services, and initiatives enable youth to realize their potential, offer families ways to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster social responsibility.
Here in Snohomish County, the Y has been serving and strengthening our communities since 1901. We’ve been here through economic booms and busts, wartime and peace, and social upheavals both subtle and life-changing. Our movement is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life, all working side-by-side to ensure that everyone, regardless of gender, income or background, has the opportunity to live life to its fullest.
Our Character Development
We value caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, and everything we do stems from this. Our staff and volunteers are kids, parents, grandparents, neighbors, and local leaders who are all personally committed to understanding what our neighborhoods need. Together, we use our knowledge to develop stronger, more integrated communities, provide support for people and families, and promote positive change overall.
To inspire, nurture, and strengthen culturally vibrant communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
The YMCA was founded in London in 1844. Since then, the Y has grown into an organization serving communities all over the world. Learn more about the history of the Y at www.ymca.net/history.
