• Girls on the Run Virtual Fall Program


    Girls on the Run Flyer

    Girls on the run is a social and emotional wellness program for girls in the grades 3-5 and 6-8 that teaches life sills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

    As many youth face changes and new challenges during the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, Girls on the Run offers girls a safe space to have their social emotional wellbeing supported.

    For girls who are missing friends and mentors: GOTR provides connection.

    For girls who are feeling fearful or insecure: GOTR provides a space where identifying and embracing emotions is practiced and normalized.

    For girls who are missing out on interpersonal skill building: GOTR teaches relationship and communication skills.

    For girls who would benefit from structure and decision making: GOTR encourages goal setting.
