Plain View Elementary launched its first Girls on the Run program for the fall season.

GOTR is a nonprofit prevention program that encourages pre-teen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running.

Fifteen third- through fifth-grade girls, and four coaches, participated in a 10-week program with curriculum that explored a girl’s self-awareness, her relationship with others and her interaction with her community.

As part of the interaction with the community, the girls chose for their community service project collecting items for Falcon Children’s Home. Diapers, wipes, baby clothes, bottles and other items were collected and delivered.

The GOTR season ended with a celebration 5K in Wilmington. Thirteen girls, their running buddies, their coaches, Jennifer Davis, Erika Tyndall, Tiffany Babb, Donna McQueen and school principal, Melanie Smith, completed the 5K.
