Girls on the Run of the Chippewa Valley

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 225 councils across the United States and Canada.

We use the power of running to provide girls with the tools to:

  • Recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making
  • Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
  • Express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions
  • Nurture our physical, emotional and spiritual health
  • Lead with an open heart and assume positive intent
  • Stand up for ourselves and others

We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond. Through interactive activities such as running, playing games, and discussing important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves. Our hope is that every girl believes and can say, "I belong just the way I am."

When word got out that there was a group of young girls running around the nation together, challenging themselves every week to grow stronger as athletes and as people, and approaching their goals with focus, passion and grace, there was no question: ASICS had to hop on their path and run right alongside them.

Athleta is the exclusive national athletic women's apparel sponsor of Girls on the Run. Our organizations’ values are well aligned as we are each committed to inspiring girls and women everywhere to achieve their limitless potential. These shared ideals initially brought many members of the Athleta team to Girls on the Run of Sonoma County, California as volunteer coaches, running buddies and board members. It is through their heartfelt commitment to the program that the company sought to partner with Girls on the Run at the national level.

GOTR girls work effectively in teams. Example: groups determine their interests/passions for community projects. Not just talk either ... these girls are all ACTION! Truly the power of the positive cord plugged in for GOTRCV!
