Girls on the Run (GOTR) is an organization designed so every girl can recognize her inner strength! The curriculum inspires girls to talk to their peers about what is important to them and encourages positive emotional, social, and physical development. Physical activity is woven in to motivate an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. Towards the end, the girls will participate in a 5K and feel confident for not only completing the run, but accomplishing their goals!
If your daughter is in third through fifth grade and would like to participate, registration is open! We will be doing everything electronically, so if your daughter is interested please sign up by emailing Lorin Skinner, Westside School Second Grade Assistant (email@example.com) before February 20 with your daughter’s name and grade. It is first come, first serve – in other words, the first 15 to email Lorin will be on the team! You will then receive the link to register.
Practices will be held at Westside School on Monday and Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
The program begins March 2 and runs through May. We are also in the process of finding coaches for this season. GOTR will provide us with two awesome coaches, but if anyone else is interested – please let Lorin Skinner know.
If this sounds like something you or your daughter would be interested in, please let us know! We are going to have a great season and look forward to hearing from you! For more information, click here: Girls on the Run.
