The Fayetteville YMCA supports the Sandhills Girls on the Run (GOTR). GOTR is a program for elementary aged girls from 8-12. This 10-week program inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running and is designed to promote good choices for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Through the experience of running, interactive activities and discussions, participants learn how to celebrate being a girl!
In November, the 5k Turkey Trot in Hope Mills culminates their fall training, for many it is their first race. For the volunteer coaches, this program is in the third season.
Looking to volunteer or get your daughter signed up in the spring session, contact the YMCA for details.
