Girls on the Run

GOTR is a program designed by women for young girls, ages 7-11. It combines a running plan with team-building and confidence building activities, and strives to teach girls how to identify combat negative influences in their lives, like bad peer pressure and bullying. By the end of a semester-long season, GOTR girls will be able to run a 5k. Because studies show that girls' confidence plummets as she approaches adolescence, as does girls' participation in sport, the program aims to empower young girls through fun, supportive, physical activities. Volunteers act as coaches and mentors for the girls.
