Girls on the Run is a 501c3 physical activity-based positive youth development program designed to develop and enhance girls’ (8-13 years) social, psychological, and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences. The GOTR program combines training for a 5k with an interactive curriculum targeting the promotion of competence, confidence, connection, character, caring, and contribution. GOTR creates a psychologically safe environment for girls to learn about themselves, connect with others, and contribute to the community. Focus on competition and ability in physical activity contexts is often a barrier for participation for girls. Girls report more enjoyment, satisfaction and positive relationships with others in climates focused on improvement, skill mastery, effort, and peer support.
Each year, GOTR of the Rockies serves over 5,500 girls at 250 schools along the Front Range. Over 60% of our participants are at-risk and are in need of scholarships. We are able to meet these needs through grants, sponsors, donors, and fundraising events.
