Girls on the Run (www.gotrlosangeles.org) is a transformational learning program for 8 to 13 year-old girls. We teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being 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.
Our most recent project with GOTR is media relations. Like many small nonprofits, GOTR staff and volunteers just don’t have the time to get the word out about what they do. JRP media relations volunteer Stevie (www.steviestjohn.com) will help them identify appropriate media outlets, craft press releases and follow up to ensure publication. This will help GOTR continue to grow – opening new programs throughout LA County and get new volunteers, and most importantly, empowering more girls.
Thanks to Stevie for her volunteer time and to GOTR for growing strong, healthy girls!
