Dayton, OH: The 804 Building and owner Jeff Mohlman are pleased to welcome the Dayton, OH branch of national organization Girls on the Run as the latest addition to The 804 family. The new resident business empowers girls to take control of their destinies and take pride in their abilities while building confidence and self-esteem. The 804 Building has a strong commitment to enhancing the downtown Dayton community, and the partnership with Girls on the Run is a natural extension of this mission.
Girls on the Run is more than just a running club for girls age eight to thirteen; it’s a youth development program that focuses on physical, mental, emotional, and social exercises to bolster female youth for current and future empowerment. The curriculum focuses on training for a 5K race event, but the underlying goal is to provide an uplifting experience and develop positive decision-making skills. Girls in the program gain confidence and enhance their self-esteem, all while developing an appreciation of health and fitness that will last a lifetime.
The Girls on the Run program aims to help girls learn positive patterns of behavior and strong decision-making skills so that they can avoid at-risk activities that might derail advancement during their teen years. Program participants develop skills and tools to help them avoid common risks like sedentary lifestyle, eating disorders, alcohol/drug use, early sexual activity, depression, suicide attempts, and run-ins with the law.
Girls on the Run was established 20 years ago in a single school, but the positive message the program provides quickly spread, so that now, the program is available in schools nationwide, including all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Nearly 180,000 girls, grades 3-8, participate annually, training, competing in, and completing a 5K event. Along the way, they make friends, practice tolerance, and learn to appreciate their own strength and individuality. To date, over a million girls have benefited from the special training offered by Girls on the Run.
The 804 Building is proud to partner with an organization like Girls on the Run that embodies positive values and enhances the downtown Dayton area. The newest addition to the growing family of resident businesses at The 804 is perfectly aligned with Partners Doug Eastham and Jeffrey Mohlman’s vision of creating a unique and dynamic collective of supportive professionals working for the betterment of the local community.
