Girls on the Run of Central Oregon

Inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend operates an affiliate program of Girls on the Run of Central Oregon dedicated to helping girls stay out of the "Girl Box" - a place where girls are valued more for their outward appearance than their character inside.

Girls on the Run is a prevention program that encourages young girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles. The curricula addresses all aspects of a girl's development by combining training for a 3.1 mile run/walk event with lessons designed to promote physical, emotional, social and spiritual development. The program objective is to reduce the display of at-risk behaviors among participants by providing the girls with the tools to make healthy decisions and form positive self-images.

The heart of Girls on the Run (GOTR) comes from our volunteer coaches. Without these trained volunteers GOTR would not exist in Central Oregon. Being a GOTR Coach is so much more than just following the well-written/research-based curriculum and helping instill a love of exercise within the participants, it's teaching the girls about positive body image, self-respect, positive peer groups, and helping their team complete a community service project prior to the end-of-season 5k.
