Girls On The Run. Let’s lace up!

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Girls on the Run© is a non-profit, community-based prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Their curricula address all aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being.

GOTR of Northeast Florida creates life-changing experiences for all girls ages 8-11 by combining training for a 5K run with important life lessons that encourage healthy habits, self-esteem, positive thinking and an active lifestyle.  The result is an awesome way of life for a new generation of girls!

Programs are held each Spring and Fall for 12 weeks at various schools, parks and YMCA’s throughout Northeast Florida, including Nassau, Duval, St. Johns, Baker and Clay counties. Girls on the Run combines running with life lessons. The program is non-competitive – we focus on getting each girl to do her individual best!

Each lesson includes team building activities, running games and work-outs, and uplifting group discussions, while focusing on a healthy living topic, such as:

*Being positive

*Handling peer pressure/gossip

*Respecting myself

Today, Miss Holly had fun at their 5K run, handing out cupcakes to the 900 runners at the finish line…

Do you know a little girl, aged 8 – 11 who would benefit from this program? Please visit www.gotrneflorida.org for more information.
