GOTR continues support during virus

The Girls on the Run Central PA chapter has cancelled Girls on the Run in person programming at all schools sites this spring and the celebratory 5K event at The Miller Center, Lewisburg.

Girls on the Run continues to provide inspiration, support and joy to our communities and girls during this challenging time.

Given these unprecedented times, Girls on the Run is providing families with the option to receive a pro-rated refund.

The program continues to provide opportunities for girls to be physically active. Girls on the Run aims to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident with fun and interactive lessons that girls and families can do at home, designed specifically for girls in mind.

While the GOTR at Home program resources are intended only for families of GOTR girls who are currently enrolled, this digital campaign will offer alternative tips and activities for all families, volunteers and followers to use and enjoy.

GOTR at Home lessons aim to provide girls of all abilities with an opportunity to learn and grow, just as they would have at their scheduled practices. GOTR at Home lessons are available in an easy-to-follow written format so girls and their grown-ups can participate together and as a YouTube video series.

The program’s #GOTRGotYourBack social media campaign aims to align with the Girls on the Run mission and values and will include content, resources and activities to help girls and families stay physically active, connected and engaged.

The Girls On the Run 5K is the culminating event of season and is key to celebrating the girls’ accomplishments. Despite not having a large group celebratory 5K events the organization will be hosting a Girls On the Run Virtual 5K.

The virtual 5K event is similar to a traditional running event except the participant will complete it their own way, at their own pace, in their own space. Girls on the Run Central PA is partnering with sister councils across the state during this event.
