Girls on the Run – Spring Lottery registration now underway!

Continuing our momentum from the fall, the Girls on the Run (GOTR) program will resume this spring at Brown for  6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls! Girls On The Run is a fantastic, national organization which combines girls empowerment with running, and we invite all interested girls to sign up for our Brown team via computer lottery. Here are the details:What is Girls On The Run?
At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
