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. MG&P has sponsored Girls on the Run of Central New Jersey for many years and are so pleased to be able to sponsor them again this Spring. Nicole M. Sciotto, Esq.
