Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley

About

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a life-changing, non-profit prevention program that uses the power of running to help girls in 3rd-5th grade develop self-respect and value a healthy lifestyle. Our curriculum addresses the development of the whole girl – her physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. The program combines training for a 5k (3.1) mile running event with healthy living education. The curriculum empowers girls with a greater sense of self-awareness, a sense of achievement and a foundation in team building, as well as a commitment to making a positive difference in their communities, all of which help them become strong, contented and self-confident women.

Some materials are available in Spanish, including the online registration system.

Our coaches have received some training on how to support students with special needs and different abilities. The team who wrote the curriculum worked with the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability, to create adaptations so girls of all abilities are able to participate in and enjoy Girls on the Run programs.
