Girls on the Run is a fantastic organization that uses the power of running and being active to change the way girls see themselves and their futures. The girls meet twice weekly for 12 weeks during the spring and fall. The sessions include running workouts and games that teach important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, goal-setting, conflict resolution, and healthy decision making. At the end of the program, all girls participate in a 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk event as a final personal challenge for the season.
The 5K run/walk will be this Saturday, April 17th at 9:00 AM at the American Tobacco Campus/Diamond View Park (map). To register and find out more information please click here. Registration for the recreational 5K and 100m sprint must be done online and closes on April 15th.
While you’re there stop by the Empower Personal Training booth to meet our trainers and participate in some fun fitness activities for a chance to win some prizes. We look forward to seeing you there!
