"I enjoyed Girls on the Run very much. I've been running with GOTR for 6 years, and this season was my last. I might become a coach when I am old enough since I love GOTR so much. This program is very fun and enjoyable.

"Anne had never run before, but she wanted to try this program because her grandpa is a 5K runner. She worked so hard and ran the 5K in 34:12 minutes. Her grandfather was her partner and they ran the entire 3 miles. That was a huge accomplishment for her."
