Girls on the Run (GOTR) uses running and relationship-building to build girls' resilience, helping them to be joyful, healthy and confident. GOTR envisions a world where every girl is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Girls on the Run programming works to develop several key protective factors for girls:

  • relationships with safe and caring adults
  • communication skills
  • social skills
  • healthy relationships with peers

The program includes evidence-based curricula for 3rd-5th graders and 6th-8th, as well as a week-long Camp GOTR program. Programming is designed to build girls' resilience and confidence through running and building positive relationships.​​​​​​​
