Girls on the Run®, the nationally-acclaimed after school program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade, is getting ready for another amazing season in Stark County! Programs are being offered at Greentown Intermediate, Orchard Hill Intermediate, North Canton Middle School, Portage Collaborative Montessori, and many other locations around Stark County.
