GOTRGC provides girls in 3rd - 8th grades with a positive, character development program that teaches girls social, emotional, and physical well-being at a critical time in their lives.
Girls on the Run of the Greater Chesapeake ("GOTRGC"), an independent 501(c)3, offers a positive youth development program to girls in 3rd - 8th grades in Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Calvert County, Queen Anne's County, and Talbot County. The program combines a research-based curriculum with running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls.
Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being. Lessons help girls make positive decisions to avoid risky adolescent behaviors. At the end of each 10-week program, the girls run a celebratory 5K to experience the exhilarating feeling of accomplishment. However, at Girls on the Run, the finish line is just the beginning, as our ultimate goal is to provide the girls with tools and resources that develop their ability to think critically - a skill that will serve them well for a lifetime.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
GOTRGC's goal is to reach as many girls in our area as possible and ensure access for every girl. Your gift will help us expand to more schools/sites and offer scholarships to girls who otherwise would not be able to afford this transformational program.
