NOTE: Due to the back-to-school transition, the first meeting of Girls on the Run has been delayed one week to Monday, March 22.

 

Girls on the Run is coming to the McLean Community Center! Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in grades 3-6. The program teaches life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

 

Our program has been adapted to ensure physical distancing and safety. In-person practices include safety, sanitizing, and physical distancing precautions.

 

Starting on Monday, March 22, the team will meet outside the MCC, twice a week for 8 weeks. The program culminates in a celebratory virtual 5K at the end of the season! The program fee is $140 and includes 16 lessons/practices, a t-shirt, a water bottle, entry into the 5K, a 5K medal and more.
