Salud y Cariño

This will be our 5th year participating in the Human Race and our first time with matching funds of $5,000! Please consider supporting our organization, Gracias! Salud y Cariño opens doors for girls to take action and gain confidence through physical activity and healthy choices to live their best lives now and in the future. The World Health Organization reports that girls begin to experience a dramatic decline in self-esteem during the pre-teen to teen years. Salud y Cariño strives to lessen that decline. Girls Group is a FREE after school program that combines physical activity and a social-emotional curriculum to promote overall wellness for girls at a critical time in their development. We believe each female, no matter her age, race or background deserves to live her best life now; healthy, happy and whole. Just three years ago we piloted our first after school program Girls Group with 17 6th grade girls. This year we are serving nearly 150 5th-8th grade girls in Live Oak and over 300 in just three years!
