About Girls on the Run: Girls on the Run of Central NJ is a nonprofit organization serving Somerset, Middlesex, Monmouth, Camden and Ocean counties. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event at three locations:  Somerville, Fair Haven and Toms River, NJ.  GOTRCNJ anticipates there will be a fall 2020 program, either in-person, virtual or a hybrid of both.  For more information go to www.
