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
