Heart & Sole is Girls on the Run’s middle school program that meets the unique needs of girls in 6th through 8th grade.
Heart & Sole considers the whole girl – body, brain, heart, spirit and social connection – in a positive, structured space where girls can:
- Learn about themselves
- Explore new ideas
- Cultivate empathy
- Strengthen connections
Running is incorporated into each lesson to encourage physical wellness and teach life skills such as:
- Team building
- Creating a support system
- Standing up for themselves and others
- Decision making
The girls prepare for a celebratory Girls on the Run 5K event at the end of the program. This non-competitive event fosters goal setting and a sense of confidence through accomplishment to last a lifetime.
Girls on the Run offers programs at a selection of schools in the Junction City and Fort Riley area. Find sites offering the GOTR program.
Registration is done by season. Visit Girls on the Run for registration details.
