Girls on the Run is SO MUCH FUN! 

Poinsettia Park is excited to host Girls on the Run this fall beginning October 5th and we invite your girl to join us! A team of 3rd-6th graders along with highly trained volunteer coaches will unleash their limitless potential Tuesday/Thursday from 3:45pm-5:15pm for 8 weeks. The program will culminate with a heartwarming and celebratory 5K on December 5th.

Girls on the Run of San Diego (GOTRSD) is a non-profit organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident through the use of a fun, experience-based curriculum. GOTRSD is dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Over the 8-week season, caring volunteer coaches teach critical social, emotional, and physical life skills such as confidence, character, connections, competence, and contribution. At the end of each season, all Girls on the Run participants, along with their coaches and supporters, complete a 5k running event which gives them a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. 

Girls on the Run San Diego is an independent council of Girls on the Run International, which has served more than one million girls across the United States. Since 2006, Girls on the Run San Diego has served more than 10,000 girls at more than 150 different schools, parks, and community centers throughout the county. Thanks to the support of individual and corporate donors, GOTRSD has maintained their promise to never turn a girl away due to the inability to pay.
