A North Vancouver businesswoman is teaming up with a South Surrey clothing store to empower girls through running, focusing on issues such as anti-bullying and confidence.

Sole Girls founder Ashley Wiles will host the eight-week program out of Triple Flip in Morgan Crossing starting Jan. 18.

The program – which costs $349 and runs Saturdays, 9:30-11:15 a.m. – has one free spot offered to those who are unable to pay the fee.

The program, which life-coach Wiles developed to encourage good body image and confidence for girls aged eight to 12, teaches participants how to run while making friends and boosting self-esteem.

“They see this transition, and it helps girls to be able to look into the mirror and say ‘you are beautiful,’ Wiles, 28, said. “As a life coach, I had so many people asking me about losing weight. But it’s not about weight, it’s about how you feel about yourself.”
