Girls on the Run Western MA
Girls on the Run Western MA, based on a national model, inspires girls (3rd-8th grades) to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience based curriculum which creatively integrates running. At GOTR we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based, social-emotional curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls develop essential social skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event. We serve all four Western MA counties and this past year over 1300 girls participated in GOTR.
