Girls On The Run- 5K This Sunday! Come Cheer or Volunteer and be prepared to be inspired!

Chances are you’ve heard of Girls On The Run. But what is it? The Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade.

Girls face social pressures and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be. Studies show that by adolescence, girls’ confidence drops about twice as much as boys’. Friendships become more complicated and challenging, girls’ perception of their academic ability declines, the likelihood of anxiety and depression increases and participation in physical activity plummets.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

We believe that EVERY GIRL is inherently FULL OF POWER and POTENTIAL. By knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.

This event would not be possible without the help of amazing volunteers like you who believe in our mission and show up to support our girls! Approximately 200 volunteers are needed to make this event successful, so no matter what your special skills and talents are, we have a role for you! Interested in volunteering? Check it out here.
