Girls on the Run of Puget Sound
Girls on the Run of Puget Sound is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Since 2002, GOTRPS has operated an after-school prevention program for 3rd through 5th grade girls throughout Puget Sound.
Girls on the Run of Puget Sound is an independent council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 200+ locations across the United States and Canada.
The objective of Girls on the Run is to educate and empower girls at an early age in order to prevent the display of at-risk activities in the future. At risk activities include substance/alcohol use, eating disorders, early onset of sexual activity, sedentary lifestyle, depression, suicide attempts and confrontations with the juvenile justice system.
We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
