A national benchmark in
Educational excellence through integration of the arts

Girls On The Run and Heart & Sole

GTR_GOT2Girls on the Run is a national program with a mission to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Girls on the Run is for girls in grades 3,4,& 5 and Heart & Sole is for girls in grades 6,7,& 8. Both teams at ArtSpace meet twice a week at 3:45-5:00 to learn about healthy decision making that fosters a positive impact on self, immediate surroundings, and community; then we run!

Girls are guided and encouraged to find their own pace – one that is challenging but not overwhelming. The session ends with a 5K Run – not a race – in which each girl and their running buddy accomplish the goal of completing the run to the best of their ability. We depend on female parent/adult volunteers to work as coaches and running buddies.

Both teams will be running March 5 – May 20, 2018. GOTR will be on Mondays & Thursdays and Heart and Sole will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Our final 5K will be on Sunday, May 20 at the Asheville Outlet Mall.

If you are interested in volunteering as a coach, please contact Ms. Sue at ro.retrahcecapstranull@gnimmuc.eusg.  For more information about Girls on the Run, visit: www.gotrwnc.org
