This year will mark the first year of a partnership between Nativity Prep and Girls on Track San Diego (GOTSD), a local non-profit affiliated with Girls on the Run International. GOTSD is dedicated to the development of healthy lifestyles and healthy bodies for young women through running, coaching, and teaching.

GOTSD’s partnership with Nativity will help encourage our middle school girls to develop healthy habits at school and at home. Its primary ‘tool’ for doing so is through a rigorous yet gradual physical-education curriculum focused on the sport of running. As part of the GOTSD program, each girl will be given a pair of running shoes, and each girl will participate in a training program that meets weekly. The GOTSD spring season will culminate in a running meet in May.

We are very grateful to GOTSD for their generous support of our students, and to Mr. Ed Howell, our Nativity faculty representative, for leading the effort in partnering with GOTSD.
