Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

We are so excited that our spring season starts on Monday!  You should be hearing from your coaches this week with more details on practice!  If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

“I am single mom of 6 year old boy.   I am a one year breast cancer survivor.  I was diagnosed at 40 in july 2013 with stage 2 breast cancer. I had a bilateral mastectomy in September then in October started 4 month chemo treatment.   Just before I was diagnosed I was planning on running my first half marathon a superhero half.  I had to put training and marathon on hold.  I ran my first half marathon in October 2014 just one year after surgery and start of chemo.   I set a goal for myself and did it.  I wasnt planning on doing superhero half until i found out about solemates.

I have heard about girls on the run before and new little about the organization.  So i read about it and When asked to be a solemate and fundraise I thought AWESOME.  I feel good about being able to help a group of girls feel good about themselves and obtain goals through fitness.”

“My name is Robin Suplicki and I am a competitive CrossFitter from Lake Hopatcong, NJ. I started to become more interested in running last summer and took part in my first few 5k races and even a 10k this past year. I love the way running makes me feel, physically and mentally. I have a few friends that were coaches for GOTR and this is how I found out about becoming a SoleMate. GOTR is a very important program and I love the idea that I am helping young girls to become part of the program!  I am running as a SoleMate for my first 1/2 marathon in May, the Superhero 1/2 in Morristown!”

“I am running my first half marathon in May – The NorthFace Endurance Challenge at Bear Mountain, NY.  In doing so, I wanted to raise money to support Girls On The Run.  GOTR is a nation-wide non-profit organization that works with girls to instill a positive sense of self along with guiding them to become strong individuals.  GOTR coaches work with these girls to introduce them to a lifestyle of fitness and provide them with the tools to grow into healthy confident women.   As a physical education and health teacher, I know how difficult it is for school-age girls to maintain a confident attitude along with a positive self-image.  Also, not every girl who needs a program like GOTR can afford it, so I believe it is very important to provide them with this opportunity.  I am so very happy and honored to help raise money for Girls on the Run!”

Thank you Doug!
