A

s a counselor at Southwest Middle School of Reading School
District, Cory Miller works with students at the crucial stage
of their lives where they start to experience changes and begin to
develop as individuals. So many girls and young women struggle
with their self-image and confidence due to extrinsic factors such as
advertisements and peer-pressure, some of the many issues that the
Girls on the Run curriculum aims to teach girls how to deal with.
When Miss Miller heard about Girls on the Run and learned more
about how the program focuses on "building empowerment, positive
self-esteem, and promoting a healthy lifestyle, [Miss Miller] knew
that becoming a coach was something [she] had to do."

This fall Miss Miller is entering her third season of coaching the
Heart and Sole program, which is for girls in sixth through eighth
grade. The Heart and Sole program essentially holds the same core
values and lessons as its sister program, Girls on the Run (for grades
3rd through 5th), by using running as a platform to teach girls
essential life skills, encourage a positive self-image, and help girls
grow into empowered women who will become a positive influence to

our society. Miss Miller describes coaching as not only teaching and
guiding the girls in self-reflection and growth, but also in becoming
comfortable in voicing their opinions and comfortable in saying
what is on their mind without self-consciousness and
fear of judgement. The program teaches young
girls to feel their opinions are valid and
important by creating an environment
of acceptance, respect, and empathy
where the girls are able to truly be
themselves, and as the program
progresses, start to feel more
confident as a person. Part of
what makes Girls on the Run
such a unique program is how
much everyone involved affects
each other. The girls learn not
only from their coaches but also
from each other. They learn how to
embrace their differences and work
