We are dedicated to helping girls realize just how incredible they are!
One girl put it this way, “I learned that I am the boss of my brain.” Helping girls take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms. You can also think of it as Can University—a place where girls learn that they can. No limits. No constraints. Only opportunities to be remarkable.
Girls on the Run is a transformational learning program for 8 to 13 year-old girls. We teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
The program combines training for a non-competitive running event with lessons that inspire them to recognize their individual strengths and talents. The program encourages positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. With a detailed curriculum of games, activities, discussions, and running, girls experience the joy of simply being themselves!
GOTR lessons inspire girls to:
- celebrate their bodies,
- honor their voices,
- recognize their gifts, and
- activate their power.
At the end of each season, they celebrate their success by participating in a non-competitive 5k (3.1 mile) walk/run. In the end, our goal is for every girl to know and activate her limitless potential and be free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Summer Camps are BACK!
Summer Camp takes the BEST of the regular season and delivers it in consolidated, easy to digest lessons. The girls will cover several topics each day, with interactive games and activities that make each topic fun. Our trained coaches use an adapted curricula in conjunction with an engaging format to help girls discover their own individual power. While training to run 1 mile at the end of the week, the girls will discover how awesome they are as they unleash their true potential. Summer Camps are for girls going into 3rd through 6th grades next fall. Whether your daughter is a long-time GOTR participant or brand new to the program, our summer camp will engage, entertain and empower!
