Girls on the Run (3rd, 4th, & 5th grade)

As members of our Girls on the Run (GotR) team, students will be inspired to a lifetime of self-respect and a healthy lifestyle through an innovative program that combines running with fun games and activities. This program promotes individual achievement and self-confidence. Students gain self-esteem and learn healthy lifestyle habits while training for a 5K run/walk race.

Girls on the Run is an inclusive program in which the dignity of every participant is respected and all youth are safe. If a child identifies as a girl and the parent/guardian identifies the child as a girl, then the child is welcome to participate in Girls on the Run. Students who identify as non-binary or gender-expansive and are interested in Girls on the Run are also welcome to participate!

  • When: Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30pm-3:45pm
  • Dates of classes: Monday, March 7 through Wednesday, May 18
  • Where: McKinley library & field
