Girls on the Run


These are just a few of the words that have been used to describe the Girls on the Run program from past participants. 
What is Girls On The Run (GOTR): GOTR is an organization for girls 3rd – 8th grade. The mission of Girls on the Run is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self respect and healthy living. Over the semester, GOTR will inspire program participants to be strong, confident and connected, and by the conclusion of the program, the girls will be physically and emotionally prepared to complete a 5k run with their teammates.
GOTR Curriculum: Three part curriculum.
1. Identify: Self-Care, Self-Awareness, Knowing Self
2. Connectedness: Selecting Healthy Relationships and Keeping them Healthy
3. Empowerment: Celebrating and Sharing our Strengths

Congratulations to SJA GOTR!!  We are so proud as all participants successfully completed the 10-week program & the 5K Saturday, May 18, 2019.


SJA GOTR team selected the Toledo Area Humane Society as their Community Impact Project.  They made dog treats and dog/cat toys and donated purchased toys/bones/treats.  

We want to extend special thanks to SJA PSO, GOTR coaches, SJA extended day, and GOTR participants & families!
