Girls on the Run Team Planned for the Spring of 2013!

Girls on the Run Spring 2013

Girls on the Run is an after-school program designed to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.  The program is sponsored by the Wilmington Family YMCA.  The curriculum includes the following topics:


*An Attitude of Gratitude

*Finishing Strong

*Drugs Hurt Your Chances

*Being a Good Sport

*Gossiping is a Bad Habit

*Learinging to Listen

*Community Begins with Me

Girls practice two days a week right after school for one hour.  The team usually consist of 16 girls.   The program runs for 10 weeks with a 5K run at the end.  All girls will need a running buddy to run the 5K with them to celebrate their final accomplishment!

HCE will be sending home more information about GOTR after the Christmas holidays.  This will be our third season participating in GOTR and it is a wonderful experience for our girls and families!  If you have any questions before then, you can visit the GOTR website at or contact Heather Floyd, HCE Physical Education Teacher (910) 353-4443.
