Welcome to Girls on the Run® (GOTR) of Northern NC
Girls on the Run® of Northern NC launched in 2010 by Henderson Family YMCA, Granville Vance District Health Department, and the Henderson Junior Woman’s Club. The program now serves approximately 130 girls at 10 sites in Northern NC.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th 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.
