Inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident with a curriculum that creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run of Nebraska offers after-school programming that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.

The Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem-solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls, their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community.

Since its inception with 11 girls in Lincoln in 2003, GOTR-Nebraska has expanded to serve more 16,000 at 100 schools and centers that span 500 miles across Nebraska. GOTR-Nebraska is one of 225 GOTR councils that collectively serve 200,000 girls a year.
