At GOTR we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by trained coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society. On #GivingTuesday, Girls on the Run aims to raise $5,000. These donations will go towards scholarship support for girls whose families might otherwise not be able to afford our nominal program fees. Girls on the Run LA will never turn away a girl for her family’s ability to pay: you can help us expand these efforts so that we can continue to serve hundreds of girls in Los Angeles County each year.
