Girls on the Run

  • The 3rd-5th grade program, Girls on the Run inspires girls of all abilities to recognize their individual strengths, while building a sense of connection in a team setting. Volunteer coaches facilitate lessons that blend physical activity with life skill development to enable girls to adapt to whatever comes their way. At the end of the season, the team completes a 5K together, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment and sets a confident mindset into motion.

    Teams practice 2 days a week and are mostly during after-school time.

    Building confidence and setting young girls down the path of a healthy lifestyle is PRICELESS! However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering the Girls on the Run program to approximately 5500 girls in Minnesota each year. * Financial assistance is available.

    Registration is $175 per girl and includes:

    • 20 ninety-minute sessions conducted by certified GOTR volunteer coaches
    • Curriculum and lesson materials
    • A healthy snack at each session
    • Official GOTR T-shirt and water bottle
    • 5K Registration fee
    • 5K Medal
