Girls on the Run 2019


The ASA Girls on the Run team is so much more than running! The mission of GOTR is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident, using a fun, experienced-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. This program is open for interested 3-5 grade girls. 

This was a remarkable ten week program where the girls participated after school in interactive lessons to develop positive physical, emotional, social and mental health, all while preparing for a 5K celebration.

Each year, GOTR teams complete a community impact project. This year our ASA team chose to make a difference right here on the middle school campus by cleaning desks, tables and chairs. Staff and students were grateful for this hard work and appreciated the positive messages left on the whiteboards for students to read upon entering their classrooms.   

Upon conclusion of the season, all of the girls joyfully completed the celebration 5K at Calder Plaza. In doing so, they demonstrated that they are confident and able to accomplish their goals! They were joined with running buddies, made up of parents, aunts/uncles, cousins and/or family friends, to help share and make this event even more memorable!  

We are grateful for the time commitment of their coaches, Stacey Wesorick and Ann Kolanowski, who not only were coaches through the season but became mentors and a source of inspiration for all of the girls as they grew in their self confidence over the season.

We are so proud of the girls and their accomplishments this season!
