GIRLS ON TE RUN (GOTR) – Last fall we had over thirty 3rd and 4th grade girls participate in the GOTR program. GOTR is a program that inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind! It is a 10-week program where the girl have developed essential skills to help them establish lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. GOTR inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun experience-base curriculum, which creatively integrates running.

We will doing GOTR again this spring. Registration for our spring 2019 group will start on January 14th and the season will begin the week of February 4th. Please go to www.gotrgreaterhouston.org or email Pam Owens @ powens@conroeiesd.net for more information.
