Ten weeks ago we embarked on a new adventure in the county where we grew up. We took on new roles as coaches at Lafayette School in New Jersey for a 3rd -5th grade after school program called Girls on the Run (GOTR). GOTR is designed to inspire girls to be joyful, happy and confident while following a curriculum, which creatively integrates running. They have 225 councils impacting communities nationwide. We met twice a week for an hour and half each time and focused on helping them find inner strength (“Star Power”) and live balanced lives on their own terms. We worked on how to choose friends and make new ones. We built their confidence and celebrated how unique each one of them truly is.
Each season they have to complete a community impact project. Our girls wanted to thank the policemen of New Jersey for keeping them safe. We created “goodie” bags for our local barracks and distributed them. We are so proud of our girls, the goals they have met and the teamwork that has been built over a ten-week period. We can delightfully say our girls are ready inside and out to run a 5K tomorrow. If you would like more information on how to get involved or would like to know how to get your child involved, email us or click the link below. This is a program we fell in love with and would love your support too! https://www.girlsontherun.org/Get-Involved
