If you'd asked me to run a 5K when I was in elementary school, I would have laughed, and then maybe cried. Running a mile seemed like an impossible feat. But these girls accomplish that and so much more. And in doing so, they learn just how strong they really are.
Girls on the Run teaches girls important lessons on topics like friendship, empathy, inner beauty, respect, and teamwork, while simultaneously preparing them to run a 5K. Each team also completes a service project to give back to their community. I can imagine few things better than empowering young girls and instilling a lifetime love of fitness while also giving them the tools to make a difference in the world. Please join my volunteer team in supporting this amazing organization!
