Girls on the Run

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). 52752924_2271349909819203_6579202608215359488_n GOTR is designed to inspire girls to be joyful, happy and confident while following a curriculum, which creatively integrates running. 54525110_2292752411012286_8493666357508833280_n.jpg 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”) 53703467_2281185238835670_5365731170065580032_nand live balanced lives on their own terms. We worked on how to choose friends and make new ones.56697087_2300724916881702_50221314585133056_n 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. 60320143_10216874068496780_3806457505299562496_n We are so proud of our girls, the goals they have met and the teamwork that has been built over a ten-week period. 57038251_2303369576617236_7725207119531606016_nWe can delightfully say our girls are ready inside and out to run a 5K tomorrow. 56877128_2303369646617229_5341071735594680320_n 59022611_10101241848602595_8928986354092605440_n.jpgIf 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.
