    Girls on the Run

    Girls on the Run is so much fun!

    Girls on the Run is a super fun, 10 week program for girls in 3rd to 5th grade. It inspires girls to embrace who they are and joyful, healthy and confident. Each practice creatively combines a different lesson on physical, emotional and mental health with fun ways to "move forward" (walking, running, skipping - it's each girl's choice). We have great discussions, play fun games and support and encourage each other. At the end of the season, all GOTR teams in the area gather downtown to complete a 5k - an incredible, positive experience leaving the girls with the knowledge that they can achieve their goals!

    Specific details for Clark’s Girls on the Run Program are listed on the flyer sent home to families with 3rd to 5th grade girls. You can also view the GOTR flyer for more information. Please call Vikki Sanders at 314-283-3340 if you have questions.
