Saturday’s race will cap a 10-week program held at ten elementary schools across Louisville.
As part of the after-school commitment, girls in grades 3-5 met twice each week with trained, volunteer coaches. The Girls on the Run curriculum is broken down into lessons specifically designed to encourage positive development in emotional, spiritual, mental, social and physical well-being.
The first-ever New Balance Girls on the Run 5K is sponsored by UPS.
Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls ages eight to thirteen years old. The program combines training for a 3.1-mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the program are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development.
