Family, friends, and community members are invited to cheer on the Girls on the Run (GOTR) team as they complete their Practice 5K on Thursday, November 9, 2017, at 3:20 p.m. at the New Haven High School track. This year's team consist of 34 girls in grades 3-6 grades at New Haven and Franklin Co. R-II elementary schools, as well as volunteer coaches and running buddies.
The reason the girls are practicing a 5k is because on Saturday, November 18, they will go to St. Louis and run a 5k with many other girls and running buddies that are participating in the GOTR program. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based program that promotes positive behavior for 3rd through 6th grade girls. It encourages girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using fun and experience-based curriculum which creatively using running. Last year's race had over 3,000 runners.
