Calling all 3rd – 5th grade girls! We are excited to offer a Girls on the Run chapter at Genesee Hill! Girls on the Run (GOTR) is an after-school program that uses running to give girls the tools to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices, recognize their gifts and activate their power! GOTR is for 3rd – 5th grade girls of ALL fitness and ability levels. The 10 week GOTR curriculum helps teach girls about self-empowerment, building confidence, and healthy lifestyles. The program creatively integrates running to drive home these lessons, and the girls train all 10 weeks to run a 5K at the end of the season. Classes will meet twice a week (Monday & Wednesday) from 2:15 – 3:45 PM. 2017 season dates are March 6 – May 22, 2017, culminating with a fun 5K on May 21, 2016. All girls must be able to commit to BOTH practice days and times in order to participate. Cost is based on a sliding scale and scholarships are available so that any girl who wants to can participate.
Interested girls can register online on the GOTR registration page here . The deadline for registration is February 17, 2017. The team is limited to 15 participants, so please register early!
