I-92 WLWI is proud to support Girls on the Run 5k! It’s happening on Saturday, May 4th at beautiful Cloverdale Park in Montgomery. Organizers say, “this family friendly event will be the most rewarding 5K you attend all spring!”
If you’re not familiar with this incredible organization, “Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Meeting twice a week in small teams, we teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.
Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Important social, psychological, and physical skills and abilities are developed and reinforced throughout the program. At each season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5K running event which gives them a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible, and teaching girls that they can.” More can be found at GirlsOnTheRun.org.
Okay, let’s get you sign up to join the fun! Oh, one more thing, Girls on the Run are looking for adult community running buddies to partner with our participants as they run, walk, hop or skip their way from start line to finish line. Click here to register.
