Girls on the Run 5K

Lots of kids and families came out for the 5K. Our employees supported the run by volunteering to coach girls and helping with the Girls on the Run 5K Turkey Trot on November 13 at the Bayshore Town Center Mall. Girls on the Run is a program for girls in the third through eighth grades. It combines training for a 5K run with workouts designed to improve self-esteem.
 
The group says its goal is “to educate and empower preteen girls in order to prevent the display of at-risk activities (substance/alcohol use, eating disorders, early onset of sexual activity, sedentary lifestyle, depression, suicide attempts, and confrontations with the juvenile justice system).” About 1,000 people were at the run.
