Girls on the Run--Registration Opens 12/13/14
Girls on the Run Program Registration Opening Soon!
Girls on the Run is a fun, life-changing, after-school program for 3rd- 6th grade girls. The 10-week program teaches girls life skills such as confidence, how to be a good friend and how to stand up for themselves and others while inspiring them to be joyful, healthy and confident by using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
Every aspect of this program is geared toward helping girls feel good about who they are—physically, emotionally and socially. Girls leave the program saying “I am strong!”, “I am amazing!”, “I can change the world!”, “I am beautiful, just the way I am!” and more!
Girls on the Run begins the week of March 2, 2015, and concludes the week of May 18, 2015. The Norwood Creek team will meet on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:10- 4:40 p.m. There will be no lessons the week of spring break. The culminating event of the season is the Girls on the Run 5K, on Saturday, May 16, 2015, at Vasona Park in Los Gatos, where program participants and community members come together for this celebratory fun run/walk.
The program fee is $210, which includes 20 lessons led by trained Girls on the Run coaches, an official program T-shirt and water bottle, all lesson materials, a healthy snack at each lesson and registration into the Girls on the Run 5K (which includes an official 5K T-shirt, a customized race bib and more!). Scholarships are available.
Program registration is online only at www.gotrsv.org and will open at 8:00 am on Saturday, December 13, 2014. Space is limited and girls will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a program is full, please sign up for the waiting list as spots may open and will be offered starting at the top of the waiting list. Registration information is available on the Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley website at www.gotrsv.org.
For more information, please visit www.gotrsv.org or contact Beth Villa, the head coach at Norwood Creek Elementary, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to have your girls in Girls on the Run this spring!
