About This Activity

  • Our community of runners supporting Girls on the Run of the Rockies

 

  • What is Girls on the Run?  A non-profit organization that uses the power of running to change the way girls ages 8-13 see themselves and their opportunities.  Girls learn to stretch themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and socially through a unique 10 week curriculum that combines self-esteem, character-building lessons with training for a 5K.

 

  • All proceeds from this event will be donated to Girls on the Run of the Rockies, and will stay in our community and be designated for overall program support.
