Organization encourages girls to run

Posted: Updated:

Catherine Gregory stopped by Talk of Alabama today to talk about the group, Girls on the Run, which aims to get more girls out and running.

According to the national web site: "Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness."

Gregory founded the only GOTR Council in Alabama right now.  You can find more information on the local organization here.
