Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is coming back to the Keene Family YMCA this Fall!

Girls on the Run – Fall 2021

  • In anticipation of possible continued COVID related safety guidance, GOTR
    program delivery has been modified to accommodate a variety of scenarios. We
    know from our experience during the Spring 2021 season that the modifications
    create a safe, flexible and accessible team environment.

About Girls on the Run
At Girls on the Run, we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate
what makes them one of a kind. Each session is led by trained volunteer coaches
who guide and mentor the girls through dynamic discussions, activities and running
games. Lessons are fun and engaging and teach specific skills and strategies such
as how to manage emotions, help others, make intentional decisions, and resolve
conflict. Girls can then use these strategies at home, at school and with friends.
The program culminates with all participants walking or running a celebratory 5K
event, which gives them a tangible sense of accomplishment, as well as a framework
for setting and achieving life goals.

  • The 8-week program is for girls in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades
    of all fitness abilities.
  • Practice Times: Tuesdays & Thursdays, 3:15-4:45 pm
  • Start Date: week of September 13th
  • Location: Keene Family YMCA
  • 5K Celebration Event: November 13th (Concord, NH)
