Our Curriculum

The Girls Running for Truth curriculum is designed to be implemented on a three-season rotating basis with one classification of traits taught each season (8 weeks). Within each classification (Kindness, Integrity, and Service) there are some topics that will be covered every season in a new exciting way, to reinforce that topic.

When covering the first season again, although it is the same general topics, the girls will now be older and the specific age issues will be very different therefore meaning much different things to the girls.

daily format

Each lesson focuses on a specific related topic and follows a five part format that provides consistency and structure for the girl's experience:

  1. Prayer/bible verse/Introduction to topic.
  2. Warm-up, Stretch: warm-up activity that bring the girls' focus onto the day's topic followed by a stretching routine that allows for a topic-related question and answer time.
  3. Exercise/running/workout game to learn objective: Each game, relay or running activitiy is designed to reinforce the days lesson.
  4. Processing and cool down: Afterwards, cool-down stretching is combined with a review and discussion of the day's lesson that encourages participant questions.
  5. Wrap up and final discussion, handout weekly newsletter: The weekly newsletter will be given to each girl to bring home to her family. Each week will be different, with any pertinent announcements or dates, healthy recipes or snack tips, that weeks Character trait (to be reinforced at home), exercise or activities the whole family can enjoy together.


At the start of each season girls will be given a GRFT t-shirt they can wear to practice if they want, and for Race Day, and each girl will have a dog tag style chained necklace, and be awarded with a Character token to add to their necklace each week as we learn about each trait. That trait will be talked about and learned with fun running and physical activities each practice. At "wrap up" each week everyone will receive our weekly newsletter "The Weekly Run Down", to bring home to their families. The newsletter will have our Character trait we learned about that week (and to be reinforced at home), healthy recipes or snack ideas, fun exercises that the whole family can do, important announcements/due dates and other helpful tips. At the end of the season the girls will all receive a trophy, and an achievement certificate, or token, and from the completion of our 5K a sweatshirt/tshirt. Cost for each Season is currently $60.00 to include everything listed above.
