Girls on the Run of North Central West Virginia inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through an empowerment program that creatively integrates running. GOTR has worked with the Center for Service and Learning since 2011. GOTR’s curriculum is centered on 5 core principles: Confidence, Character, Care, Connections, and Competence. Not only do the organization’s leaders inspire these qualities in the girls participating in the program, but also in the volunteers who serve with them in any capacity. Over the years, GOTR has welcomed WVU students from freshmen to grad students, hosting a multitude of service-learning classes; and have a consistent stream of short and long term service opportunities available to our Mountaineers. According to Executive Director, Laurie Abildso, “Volunteers are the heart of our program and we could not accomplish our mission without them. We love the energy and ideas students contribute”. WVU students have served as coaches, marketers, event planners, fundraisers, and sparkle runners, among other things. A volunteer from a service-learning class 6 years ago is now the GOTR board Chair. The CSL congratulates GOTR of North Central WV as the winner of the 2017 Excellence in Engagement Community Partner Award.
