Registration open for Washougal ‘Girls on the Run’ program

Girls on the Run is returning to Washougal this fall.

The program is open to third-, fourth- and fifth-grade girls attending Washougal elementary schools and will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday from Tuesday, Sept. 13, to Thursday, Nov. 17, at Columbia River Gorge Elementary School.

GOTR is a Charlotte, North Carolina-based nonprofit that offers programming designed to strengthen girls’ social, emotional, physical and behavioral skills and ability to successfully navigate life experiences. The Washougal teams are part of GOTR Greater Oregon, which formed in January 2022 after the Portland Metro, Willamette Valley and Central Oregon GOTR councils merged.
