"So now I can say without any problem whatsoever, I am a Girls on the Run participant so now if I can accomplish this marathon, I can accomplish anything!"- Carly, age 9
Girls on the Run is not just about getting girls out to run, it’s about encouraging healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls, inspiring self-respect and developing positive physical, emotional and social well-being. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5k event. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.
Our goal is to provide scholarships for TEN girls at Nolan Elementary-Middle School to participate in the upcoming season. The students do not have a health class in school, and many don't know how to live a healthy lifestyle, receive proper nutrition, or receive any physical activity. GOTR embraces all these topics.
Can you help us make this goal possible?
