Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program that combines training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goal of the program is to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running.
Heart & Sole is a new Middle School program that is designed specifically to focus on the complex needs of middle school girls in grades 6-8. Heart & Sole addresses the whole girl – body, brain, heart, spirit, and social connections – and creates a positive, structured space for middle school girls to learn about themselves, build self-esteem, explore new ideas, cultivate empathy, strengthen connections, and develop life skills that will help them as they navigate the challenges of adolescence and beyond. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running. The girls will meet after-school twice a week for 10 weeks with the season ending 5k to be held on December 2nd in Howard County, MD. Oakland Mills Middle School will meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 2:40-4:00 starting the week of September 17th. Registration is open! Visit www.gotrcentralmd.org to register.
