TMS Starts New Empowerment Program for Girls
Tecumseh Middle School has established a Heart & Sole program through the Dayton Chapter of the Girls on the Run (GOTR) program.
Heart & Sole is a confidence-building empowerment program for girls. It meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is comprised of 8 to 15 girls who were selected through a lottery. The girls learn life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games.
Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishments. At the season’s conclusion, the girls complete a community service project with a 5K fun run.
