At Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond (GOTR) we envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. This vision becomes reality as we inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experienced-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Our council is working to bring diverse voices to the table as we know that unique perspectives strengthen the quality and scope of our organization. We pledge to be a reflection of the communities we engage, not only in appearance, but also through fostering an atmosphere of community connectedness that serves as a model for our girls and other stakeholders.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. We teach critical life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime of appreciation of health and fitness.
