Hi friends and family,
I am very excited to be running with the Girls on the Run team for my first marathon! GOTR is an after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade that focuses on confidence, goal-setting, accomplishment, social and emotional well-being, as well as physical health.
Girls on the Run info:
Girls on the Run, it is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) life-changing, after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Simply put, Girls on the Run transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The mission is achieved by volunteer coaches who meet with the girls as a team twice per week for 12 weeks as they complete the curriculum which creatively integrates running, goal-setting and training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants.
