Review for Girls on the Run of the Triangle Inc, Durham, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GOTR is an amazing nonprofit that benefits girls in 3rd-5th grades. It empowers the girls and gives them the tools to deal with a range of issues that will benefit them their whole lives. I have had a niece in the program and my little girl can't wait to become old enough--I would recommend this to anyone.

Review for Girls on the Run of the Triangle Inc, Durham, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I wish GOTR had been in existence when I was a child! The program, while geared around running, is about so much more--building confidence, dealing with media images, understanding complicated life events from a kid's perspective, learning how to feel things honestly. And the sense of accomplishment at the end of a program--after the participant runs and completes a 5k at age 8, 9 or 10--is something that will remain with the child for the rest of her life. In 12 weeks, so much can happen for a young person: this program can help make these important years positive. Further, for volunteers and coaches, GOTR offers a great outlet for giving back to our communities in really fun ways!
