You may or may not know about Girls On the Run. It's a non-profit that aims to inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness.

The season has led up to this big fun-filled 5k finale where the girls, and everyone in the community is welcome! The 5k run (or walk) is Saturday, May 19th, and registration is still open! I (Raleigh) will be out there as the emcee for the event, and it's going to be a BLAST! Don't worry if you're not a "runner" this is an event for all ages and abilities. If nothing else come out and support our local girls as they end their season with a bang. You can be a running buddy for a girl, or just bring the family or yourself and support our community while having a fun time! To get more information and to register, click this right here! See you Saturday!
