You should check out a character development program called Girls on the Run at www.girlsontherun.org. It's a great program that uses the power of running to build self-esteem and healthy lifestyles in girls grades 3rd-5th.

The school I teach at participates in Girls on Track (the 6th-8th grade version of Girls on the Run). It is a wonderful program. I also highly recommend checking them out.
