Girls on the Run of Nebraska (GOTR, www.GOTRNebraska.org) will implement a brand-new curriculum for the spring 2024 season called “Hello, Superstar!”
Girls on the Run provides after-school programming that builds confidence, character and fitness in third- through sixth-grade girls. GOTR teams of 10 to 20 girls meet twice weekly for two months to complete an innovative curriculum that blends life-skills lessons with physical training to complete a 5K run.
Since its inception with 11 girls and two coaches in September 2003, Girls on the Run of Nebraska has expanded to serve more than 24,000 girls and 3,000 coaches at 100+ sites across the state.
The “Hello, Superstar!” curriculum will boost confidence with a series of lessons teaching girls to embrace their individuality. A lesson called “My Body Rocks” focuses on addressing body-shaming and promoting a healthy body image. Another lesson, “The Recipe of Me,” encourages self-reflection and asks girls to identify what makes them uniquely them. These lessons include fun running games to help girls prepare to complete the GOTR 5K at the end of the season.
