Anyone who has been to a Girls on the Run 5K knows that it is unlike any other running event. It is a celebration of and for the girls who are completing a ten week season of Girls on the Run programming. By the day of the 5K, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race!
Our Celebration 5k will be held on May 22, 2014 at Fifth Third Ballpark. This event is open to community members and all parents and friends of KCGOTR participants. Please consider registering for this marvelous event and be prepared to be blown away!
This event requires more than 100 volunteers. Please consider helping KCGOTR and volunteering. Sign up here!
KCGOTR is the Kent County chapter of Girls on the Run® International, a nonprofit program designed to help pre-teen girls build confidence, strengthen their self image and develop healthy life skills.
With the help of hundreds of volunteer team liaisons and coaches, we combine training for a 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk with a series of engaging, fun lessons that inspire girls to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others.
The program culminates with a non-competitive 5K celebration run/walk ― a capstone event that helps participants realize the power they have to achieve their goals.
GOTR Programs are available for girls in grades 3-5 (spring) and grades 6-8 (known as Girls on Track® and held in the fall).
