ABOUT GIRLS ON THE RUN LAS VEGAS
Girls on the Run® Las Vegas is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Girls on the Run inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through a research-based curriculum which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the eight-week program, girls in 3rd through 8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
LUNAFEST® is not just a traveling film festival, it’s a force for change. For almost 20 years, LUNA has been championing and supporting women. LUNAFEST® was created to provide a platform for women to share their untold stories with the world. These important films bring fresh perspectives, ideas that rock our future. LUNAFEST also makes an impact at the local level, helping to raise funds for women’s causes while providing a global stage for female filmmakers.
