Girls on the Run

On April 30th, the BHESA GOTR team participated in a 5k at Lake Park Community. The girls have been training the last twelve weeks for the 3.1 mile running event not only through exercise, but also weekly self-esteem enhancing lessons.

Each girl was awarded a medal upon completion, which was followed by a celebration with live music, face-painting and lots of fun activities.

GOTR is a non-profit program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. The goals of the program are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. The program runs every Spring, with a team that consists of 8-15 girls.

We are very proud of all the girls for their dedication and commitment to the program!
