PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Girls on the Run is about a lot more than running.

The new after-school program for 3rd through 5th grade girls is gaining in popularity at Portland area schools.

They work on their physical health but they also work on their emotional and social health as well as dealing with what being a girl is all about.

The Girls on the Run 5K is Saturday, May 30, with roughly 500 girls from nearly 40 schools participating.
