Hi, everyone! I am very excited to represent Girls on the Run during the TCS New York City Marathon 2016.
Girls on the Run (GOTR), it is a youth development program for girls in 3rd to 8th grade. This program coaches young, developing ladies life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. Through health education and the annually GOTR 5k race, the girls gain confidence in themselves and establish a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons and conversation-based running games. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful a contribution to community and society.
