The Girls on the Run lessons encouraged positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. They also developed important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. They learned about the importance of team work and healthy relationships, and explored how they can positively connect with and shape the world.
At the end of the program, the girls participated in a Girls on the Run 5k event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.
Thank you to all the participants for your hard work! A special thank you also goes out to Coach Mercil, Coach Finke, and Coach Zaloudek!
