2017 GOTR 5K Run Registration

Who We Are:
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run is an Affiliate Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

Our Mission:

To inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experienced-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Our Vision:

We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to bodly pursue her dreams.

Our Core Values:

We strive to:

  • Recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making
  • Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
  • Express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions
  • Nurture our physical, emotional and spiritual health
  • Lead with an open heart and assume positive intent
  • Stand up for ourselves and others

Our Program:

We offer a 10 week after-school program with bi-weekly sessions led by trained volunteer

coaches that guide and mentor the girls through fun and uplifting lessons that incorporate running

practices. The program concludes with a celebratory 5K event. On May 30, 2015, the spring 5K

will bring more than 200 girls, along with 100+ running buddies, 40+ coaches, 30 volunteers and

100+ community and family members together to be inspired as the girls cross the finish line.
