Girls on the Run CenLA

To serve girls and families facing uncertain schedules for the upcoming school year, Girls on the Run has rolled out some new options for the Spring 2021 school year.

Our traditional programs (GOTR and Heart & Sole) are still available, but both programs are able to easily transition to a virtual platform incase of school closures. Our new program, GOTR at Home offers the proven GOTR programming, designed to be scalable for your space (from your bedroom to a local track), and includes a t-shirt, activity booklet, physical activity guide, hair accessories, online resources, and more delivered directly to your doorstep. 

Our 5K will be held Saturday, December 5th at the Fulton Mini Park in Downtown Alexandria.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run is an Affiliate Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.
