At Girls on the Run of Portland Metro (GOTR), we believe that every girl has limitless potential. GOTR is a physical activity-based positive youth development (PA-PYD) program that is designed to enhance girls’ social, psychological and physical skills and behaviors to successfully navigate life experiences.
