Girls on the Run is an after school program that combines curriculum with sport aimed at building self esteem and confidence in young girls between 3rd and 5th grade. Throughout the 10 week season, the girls will discuss such topics such as body image, popularity, gossiping, choosing our friends, conflict resolution and much more. The girls will develop their character, competence and feel confident in who they are, creating positive connections with peers and adults while making a meaningful contribution to their community. The curriculum is also combined with the sport of running. The running activities are used as a medium for teaching life skills and promoting healthy outcomes, while coming together as a team to support one another. At the conclusion of the program, the girls will join other teams to celebrate their accomplishments with a celebratory 5k.

The GOTR season will begin on September 11th and conclude with the GOTR 5k on November 19th at the Sussex County Fairgrounds. More information is available on their website, www.gotrnjn.org. For questions, email Girls on the Run at info@gotrnjn.org.
