Girls on the Run Registration Open
Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls in 3rd - 5th grade. Teams of 15-20 girls meet twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45-5pm for 10 weeks. Each lesson focuses on themes that girls can relate to such as making and being friends, recognizing and managing emotions, and working as a team. Our trained coaches use running to inspire and motivate, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. As part of the program, each team creates and executes a local community service project to show girls that they have the power and potential to make a difference in their community and on society. Each season concludes with the girls and their running buddies completing a 5k run, which provides a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The spring season will start the week of March 18, with the season-ending 5k scheduled for June 2 in Columbia, MD. Registration opens on Sunday, February 11th at 12:00 noon. Program registration fee is $175 and includes 5k registration, water bottle, t-shirt, and all program materials. Financial assistance is available. Visit www.gotrcentralmd.org to register. Questions? Call 443-864-8593.
