As summer comes to an end and students start going back to school we wanted to highlight one of our charities, Girls on the Run (GOTR). GOTR is a positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. GOTR is getting school-aged girls all over the country running. Through running the girls make friends, build confidence and learn goal setting. At the end of the 10-12 week program, the girls complete a celebratory 5k.
This amazing organization has served over 168,000 girls and counting. Want to find a chapter near you? Visit here. You can also support GOTR by logging some Charity Miles for them. Introduce your school-age kids to fitness and giving back all by using the Charity Miles App.
