Mission Statement

Girls on the Run of Southwest Missouri inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using fun, experience-based curricula that creatively integrates running. As the only national physical activity-based, positive youth development (PA-PYD) program for girls with an evidence-based curriculum, trained coaches, and a commitment to serving all girls, Girls on the Run makes a stronger impact than organized and physical education programs in teaching life skills such as managing emotions, resolving conflict, helping others, and making intentional decisions. The program’s intentional suite of curricula is designed to enhance girls’ social, psychological, and physical skills and behaviors to successfully navigate life experiences. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and completing a celebratory, non-competitive 5K event providing the framework for confidence through accomplishment.

Description

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Through intentionally designed programs, GOTR empowers girls in 3rd- to 8th-grade to recognize their inner strength, increase their level of physical activity, imagine their possibilities, and confidently stand up for themselves and others through the innovative integration of fun physical activities, life-skills lessons, and impactful community projects.
