About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run San Diego

Project Created on: 01/23/2017

Project Type: Peer-to-Peer

About Monika:

Monika Carlson Allen, marathon runner, GOTRSD coach and board member, tutu maker, wife, and mother exemplified the spirit and character of Girls on the Run San Diego: strength, empowerment, kindness, enthusiasm, perseverance, love, and living your truth.

 

GOTRSD has created a scholarship in Monika's memory. This scholarship will be awarded to Girls on the Run San Diego participants who are facing daunting life challenges. Scholarship recipients will reflect the attributes of Monika: perseverance, courage, and fearlessness.

 

The Girls on the Run Mission:

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

 

The Girls on the Run Program:

Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons help girls make positive decisions to avoid risky adolescent behaviors.

 

At the end of each 10 week program the girls run a celebratory 5k to experience the exhilarating feeling of accomplishment. However, at Girls on the Run, the finish line is just the beginning, as our ultimate goal is to provide the girls with tools and resources that develop their ability to think critically - a skill that will serve them well for a lifetime.
