Girls on the Run VT announces its 18th season

Girls on the Run Vermont (GOTRVT) welcomes its 18th season by announcing program registration for Central Vermont. From now until Feb. 22, parents or guardians can register their girls for the Central Vermont spring program at a participating site or recreation center via the GOTRVT website.
Meeting twice a week for 10 weeks, this after-school program is designed to help girls in grades three through eight realize the importance of self-confidence, healthy living, respect for their peers, and responsibility to their community. The lessons creatively integrate running, providing the girls with an opportunity to set goals and challenge themselves in an encouraging environment that advocates both physical and emotional wellness.
This spring’s program will culminate with the annual Girls on the Run VT 5K Run/Walk and community celebration on May 13 at 10 a.m. at the Vermont State Fairgrounds in Rutland.
The cost for Girls on the Run to deliver the program is $180 per participant; however, understanding the economic challenges that families are faced with, GOTRVT automatically subsidizes that cost for every girl, enabling them to offer this valuable program for $100. GOTRVT also has a limited financial assistance budget to offer families that qualify for the Vermont Agency of Education’s free and reduced lunch program.
Parents and guardians are encouraged to enroll their girls early since space for each site is limited. With hundreds of trained coaches ready to empower these girls, central Vermont programs will kick off the week of Feb. 27.
