Girls on the Run is so much more than a running program!

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8thgrade. Girls on the Run is designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological, and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences.

At Girls on the Run, we are moved and compelled to work diligently to create a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is inspired to be joyful, healthy and confident. Over a period of 10 weeks, GOTR participants follow a program designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength and inspire them to define their own lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique.

The GOTR lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face. They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. It starts with helping girls get a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them, then looks at the importance of team work and healthy relationships before exploring how they can positively connect with and shape the world.

Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each ten-week session, the girls participate in a GOTR 5k event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum and gives girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when girls realize that even the seemingly impossible is possible.

 

The Results are in:

After participating in Girls on the Run, we have seen:

  • 85% of GOTR girls improved in confidence, competence, caring, character or connection.

    • The biggest gains were in connection (how supported GOTR girls felt by their peers) and confidence (how much GOTR girls liked the person they are).

  • GOTR girls who were least active at the start of the season increased in physical activity by more than 40%.

  • 97% of GOTR girls learned life skills
