Girls on the Run Greater Cincinnati is planning its end-of-season 5k event. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based youth development program that prepares third- through eighth-grade girls for a 5k event, while helping them develop key life skills.
Volunteer-led teams meet twice a week for 10 weeks to participate in lessons that prepare the girls for the 5k, build their confidence and connections with peers and encourage contributions to the community through a service project.
The celebratory 5k is a noncompetitive event that provides girls with a goal to work toward during the season and shows them the finish line is just the beginning when it comes to going after their dreams.
The event is open to the public. Registration, which includes a shirt, is $20-$25.
