    Napa has empowered, Healthy Girls!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     After dropping out of the corporate world, GOTRNapa decided to give back to her community by helping young girls build their confidence through sports. "(Girls on the Run) provides the girls with a life toolkit and the inspiration to believe in themselves," she says.
    - JacqueCNN, CNN iReport producer

    Napa County inspires us to be healthy by offering Girls on the Run to over 600 young girls (8 to 13) annually. The girls are inspired to be confident, joyful and healthy by participating in a 10 week empowerment program that creatively combines life skill curriculum with fun, experiential activities and running or just moving it . We are helping to change "run like a girl" to a compliment and "being on a diet" to choosing to be healthy and not to fit into some jeans that were worn by a model or rock star! I say Napa you say HEALTHY!
