My oldest daughter of three children who is currently a 5th grader within the Lynchburg City School System is currently a member of GOTR. And I cannot say enough (positively) about this organization.
Thanks to them, my daughter has more self-esteem, more self-aware, more confident both inside and out. And she now KNOWS she can accomplish ANYTHING that she sets her mind to.
Also, the running is helping her to VISIBLY slim down, as she is now losing all that "baby fat". She can now (literally) run circles around me. If I tried to even run half as far, I think I'd collapse.
But being my daughter is being given all of the tools she needs to carry on in to the next stage of her life as a teenager and as a student in Middle School, I can safely say, much credit MUST go to Girls On The Run of Greater Lynchburg, and the team's coaches, Mrs. Yeoman and Mrs. Daniels.
