BCA is very proud to announce our July Charity Spotlight, Girls on the Run of Montgomery and Delaware Counties. GOTR is a youth organization that promotes self confidence and team building for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. GOTR envisions a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run® was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Girls on the Run® curricula, the heart of the program, provides pre-adolescent girls with the necessary tools to embrace their individual strengths and successfully navigate life experiences. The earliest version of the 24 lesson curriculum was piloted in 1996 with the help of thirteen brave girls. The following season, twenty-six girls participated, then in 1998 the roster had seventy-five girls. In 2000, Girls on the Run International, a 501c3 organization was born.
