Mountain Home Veteran Affairs campus was the site of the Northeast Tennessee Girls on the Run 5K race held December 1, 2012. The race event serves as the culminating experience for girls in the fall program and is open to all runners and walkers.

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a transformational learning program for 8 to 13 year old girls that teaches life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally 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.

Volunteers are important to the success of a program like GOTR. In this video we have chosen to honor their spirit, enthusiasm, dedication, and hard work that makes this program the success that it enjoys. If you would like to participate in GOTR of Northeast Tennessee, contact Ani Boyd at ani.boyd@girlsontherun.org for information.
