Maumee, OH US 43537
Are you up for an amazing celebration of GIRL POWER? Our Spring 5k, which will be held at Fallen Timbers Mall, on Saturday, May 31st will be the culmination of our Girls on the Run of Northwest Ohio Spring season. All of our participants will be completing the 5k along with their family and friends. This event is NOT just for our participants and NOT just for girls....we would love for our whole community to come out and show our support for these girls!
Last Fall, we had nearly 700 participants at our race and we had an amazing time! On May 31st, we expect an even bigger crowd and an even more amazing experience!
Feel free to come decked out in a cape, a tutu, a crown, a colorful hairdo....anything goes!
Defeating the Girl Box ... just a little taste of what GOTR is all about
Our inner superheroes constantly battle the Girl Box. Yeah, the GIRL BOX. Walk down the doll aisle in any store, and you'll see rows and rows of identical boxes. Lots and lots of perfect little boxes. Society pressures all women to fit into its version of these perfect little boxes: the Girl Box. Inside it, we're trying to be who we're told we're supposed to be (you know - skinny, pretty, perfectly dressed, etc....), instead of being our truly awesome, amazing, powerful, unique selves! Isn't it time you broke out of your Girl Box?

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. THe 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we can connect with and shape the world at large.
Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society, while also working together as a true team to complete teh Girls on the Run 5k Run/Walk at their own pace.
