Girls on the Run
Girls On The Run (GOTR) is a 10-week program that incorporates training for a 5k event as a means to teach essential life skills to our 3rd – 5th grade girls. There are two seasons (fall and spring) in which the program occurs, each culminating with a 5k event, which provides the opportunity for the girls to achieve their goal and celebrate their accomplishment.
Each of the 20 lessons in the research-based curriculum stresses the importance of being a well-balanced, healthy person. The lessons are designed to:
- develop the girls emotionally, mentally, socially, spiritually and physically
- encourage independent thinking
- increase problem solving skills
- encourage teamwork
- build community
