Girls On The Run

Girls On The Run

Andi Anderson, an avid runner, is an active volunteer with the Girls On The Run (GOTR) programs.  GOTR is a nationally recognized preventative program developed in 1996 to encourage a better sense of self-identity and healthy living in pre-teen girls.  The program is designed to improve body image to prevent unhealthy behavior like alcohol and drug use, obesity and eating disorders by tackling all areas of girls development - physical, emotional and social.  The lessons are taught through games, work-outs, team building activities and group discussions.  At the end of each 24 week session, each girl has the opportunity to complete a 5K run.
