Girls on the Run will have over 800 girls for the Spring 5K in Brunswick. Don't miss this exciting event!

Q97.9 is a huge supporter of Girls on the Run. We firmly stand behind their mission. GOTR inspires ALL girls to build confidence and make intentional decisions while fostering care and compassion for themselves and others. Plus, getting girls to move and use physical activity as a way to socialize is important. Please be a part of the first in-person 5k since Covid. Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 4, at Brunswick Landing.  Q97.9 will once again be there cheering on the girls as they cross the finish line!

Why it matters

Girls face social pressures and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be. Studies show that by adolescence, girls' confidence drops about twice as much as boys'. Stressors related to COVID-19 have undoubtedly affected girls, between social isolation, anxiety, and more limited opportunities for physical activity. Girls need GOTR now more than ever. They believe that every girl is inherently full of power and potential. By knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who will change the world.

Be a part of the inspiring 5k - Volunteers needed

At Girls on the Run, girls are working towards being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a 5k running event. On June 4, girls will gather with their teammates, coaches, family, and friends to celebrate all of the growth and accomplishments they have made this spring season!  Having seen these events in the fall and spring, there is nothing more uplifting than watching a girl who has worked so hard finish a 5k. For many of the girls, their first one ever. There will be over 800 girls with almost every GOTR member from Aroostook County planning to attend!

Join the girls at the Girls on the Run 5K on June 4, at Brunswick Landing. 5K Registration and Volunteer sign-up are open now.
