HH Girls On The Run!

We will have our 1st Girls on the Run team at Hickory Hills! 3rd-5th grade girls who can attend practice can register to join the team. Practice starts February 5th, and will be held at HH on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:30pm.  Girls on the Run is for every girl, regardless of their running ability. The fee to participate starts as low as $10. Registration and additional information will be given next week. Please contact Mrs. Tutson at ctutson@marietta-city.org for questions about GOTR. 

 

“Girls on the Run is a program for girls in 3rd-5th grade that encourages girls to recognize their individual strengths and celebrate connections with others. Each season, girls gain a better understanding of who they are and what's important to them, the value of teamwork and healthy relationships and how they can have a positive impact on the world. Girls also make a meaningful contribution to their community through a team-organized Community Impact Project. Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation for fitness and healthy habits and teach life skills including treating others with care, practicing gratitude and managing emotions. Each season culminates with a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event provides girls with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age.” – Girls on the Run website
