Girls on the run

girls on the run

       All girls in 3rd through 5th grade are invited to come join us as we have fun learning and growing together.  We will learn to honor our fabulously unique selves, our voices, our physical abilities, and our gifts. In doing so, we will activate our individual power! 

       Girls on the Run (GOTR) is an after-school program that uses the power of running to prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Through interactive activities, such as running, playing games, and discussing important issues, GOTR participants learn how to celebrate being pre-teen girls. The program focuses on building self-esteem and improving emotional and physical health.  During the 8-week Spring program, girls are empowered with a greater self-awareness, a sense of achievement, and a foundation in team building to help them become strong, contented, and self-confident young women. 

       Each session is led by trained, volunteer coaches who guide and mentor girls through a fun and uplifting curriculum. Coaches teach specific life lessons such as dealing with body image and the media, resisting peer pressure, making healthy decisions, and contributing to the community.  Along the way, the girls train together to complete an end-of-season celebratory 5K (3.1 mile) event.

        In the end, girls leave with a stronger sense of identity, a greater acceptance of themselves, a healthier body image, and an understanding of what it means to be a part of a team and a community.  Most importantly, Girls on the Run is FUN 😊
