It was great to see the girls running and the community cheering them on. The bi-annual 5K race is a celebration of the participants completing the Girls on the Run curriculum, a life-changing program for 3rd through 8th grade girls that focuses on self-confidence, healthy relationships and feeling good about themselves.
