Lincoln School’s Girls on the Run – registration now open!

Girls on the Run inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd and 4th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.

GOTR will begin in March and meet every Tuesday and Thursday after school in the gym from 3:10-4:30.  The program will run until the celebratory 5k race!

If interested, please visit the website: www.gotrchicago.org and register by February 14.  Any questions, please contact Julie Fleisch (julie.fleisch@outlook.com)
