“Reflecting on this (spring 2016 5k) weekend, I can’t say thank you enough to all the East High GOTR coaches & volunteers. Jacqueline absolutely loved the program, made new friends, gained self confidence & met her goal – running an entire 5k without walking. It was a great mother-daughter experience to watch her cross that finish line with so much excitement, determination & pride. As she told me one day after practice, “Mom, Girls on the Run has made me a better person.”~ a GOTR parent

Putting running into context with GOTR

Our goal for each girl is to:

  • Complete the 5k run/walk event
  • Have a stronger sense of identity
  • Learn the advantage of peer group support
  • Learn to stand up for herself in a healthy manner
  • Have an improved body image
  • Understand her place in the community

Girls on the Run is divided into two age-specific programs

  • The Girls on the Run Program, an experiential program for 3rd – 5th grade girls
  • The Heart and Sole uses the Girls on the Run Model, but focuses on issues of importance to 6th – 8th grade girls
