Girls on the Run is a life-changing, non-competitive, non-profit prevention program for preteen girls. Their mission is "to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living." Girls train for a 5K run/walk and are encouraged to develop positive, healthy habits.

In Mason County a training session for this year's coaches will be held February 24. Sign-up forms are expected to be distributed in schools by February 15. The cost is $40 per student, but scholarships are available for families who demonstrate economic hardship.

Girls on the Run was founded in 1996 by four-time Ironman triathlete, Molly Barker. Her interest in adolescent issues, combined with teaching and counseling expertise, led her to develop the curriculum for GOTC.
