Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run Boston, a chapter of Girls on the Run international, is supported locally by Hill House Inc., a Beacon Hill-based community center that works to fund and execute service activities in order to meet the diverse social, educational, cultural and recreational needs of individuals and familiies residing in Boston's downtown neighborhoods. Through quality programs, collaborative parternships and volunteer support, Hill House seeks to build and foster a strong sense of urban community and improve the quality of life for residents of all ages.
Girls on the Run utilizes a 24-lesson curriculum to develop positive social, emotional and physical habits in pre-teen girls (ages 8-12/ grades 3-5). Girls are prepared for a lifetime of healthy living, ready to take-on any challenge.
Girls on the Run Boston currently hosts 4 teams in the Beacon Hill, North End and South Boston neighborhoods. The spring season promises further growth--additional teams in Dorchester, Brighton, Downtown and Charlestown neighboorhoods. The program is a wonderful addition to public after school programs. Fundraising initiatives like the Boston Marathon will allow the GOTR team to extend its reach to every Boston school.
Boston's team of coaches and thought-leaders are passionate about the GOTR mission...we thank you for your support!
