Girls on the Run (GOTR) inspires girls to be healthy and confident by using an interactive curriculum that creatively integrates running. This project conducts a spatial analysis of physical inactivity and academic achievement while recommending additional counties for GOTR expansion in Michigan. The research examines whether there is a negative correlation between elementary to middle school achievement in Michigan and physical inactivity? What are potential counties with low health factor rankings that Girls on the Run (GOTR) should expand into?
