Molly Barker, MSW is a visionary and four-time Hawaii Ironman triathlete.
Molly began running at the age of 15 – an age when she found herself stuck in the “girl box”, where only girls who were a certain size with a certain beauty were popular; where girls who wanted to fit in had to mold their bodies and their personalities to fit the requirements of the box.
In 2000, Girls on the Run International, a 501c-3 organization was born. Today, there are Girls on the Run® programs in over 150 cities across North America, with tens of thousands of girls and women participating.
The innovative, experiential program combines training for a 5k event with life-changing self-esteem enhancing lessons that enhance social, physical and mental health in 8 – 12 year old girls.
