GOTRI designs programming that strengthens third- to eighth-grade girls’ social, emotional, physical, and behavioral skills to successfully navigate life experiences. More than 2 million girls have participated in the program since it launched 24 years ago. Girls on the Run of Snohomish County (GOTRSnoCo), formed in 2015, has served over 1,700 girls in the past five years and currently works with girls in seven school districts throughout Snohomish County — Edmonds, Mukilteo, Everett, Marysville, Lake Stevens, Snohomish, and Northshore.
The program normally operates at local schools from March to June, involving over 200 adult volunteer coaches and team helpers. GOTRSnoCo is currently offering virtual programming, which begins Oct. 12, to ensure girls are supported during the pandemic.
