GIRLS ON THE RUN!!!

Girls on the Run is so much fun! Girls on the Run inspires girls in 3rd – 5th  grades to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Each session is led by trained, volunteer coaches who guide and mentor girls through the fun, uplifting curriculum. The 10-week season concludes with all participants walking or running in a celebratory, non-competitive 5k (3.1 mile) event. Absolutely no running experience is necessary!

 

Online registration will be open August 4th through September 5th at www.gotrsaginawbay.org or www.facebook.com/girlsontherunsaginawbay.  Registration may also be completed in the Loomis Media Center during Parent Orientation Meetings on August 19th, 21st, and 25th. The registration fee is $150 and covers the cost of one child’s participation. Scholarships are available based on a sliding scale with a $5 minimum fee. No one is turned away for inability to pay the full registration fee. Registration includes 20 sessions led by trained volunteer coaches, a new pair of running shoes, healthy snacks at each lesson, lesson supplies, official GOTR t-shirt, 5k entry and finisher’s medallion.  Season begins September 15th and concludes with the 5k on November 22nd.  Sessions meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:00pm.
