• Girls On The Run

    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 on the season. 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. GOTR is a wonderful experience for our girls and families!
