A new Shreveport nonprofit will begin delivering its mission next month to empower girls in third through eighth grade through a 12-week program called Girls on the Run. Shreveport is the newest council addition to Girls on the Run International. 

Executive director Beth Ann Menger was involved in the organization when she lived in Washington, D.C. When she moved to Shreveport two years ago, she was determined to bring Girls on the Run here.
