Title IX Girls Running Club (TIXGRC) is a community based, non-profit organization that develops and delivers wellness programs for girls’ ages 9-15. Stacy Rodriguez-Rennard, a licensed mental health clinician, who works extensively with adolescents and families who have survived traumatic experiences, founded TIXGRC in 2007.
There is a great need in Cambridge and the greater Boston area for age and gender appropriate programs to support girls’ emotional development and unique needs. Our Whole Girl Workout teaches girls how to run, be mindful and compassionate.
