Girls on the Run is changing the lives of girls in New Orleans. Through a curriculum that incorporates running, girls in grades 3 through 8 are inspired to become joyful, healthy, confident and thoughtful leaders and thinkers in their communities.
Ok, and they have a lot of fun, too. Seriously, take a look at these photos below and you'll agree, we've never seen bigger smiles – and especially not after running 3.1 miles!
That's why these girls are rockstars. Confident, tutu-wearing, 5k-running rockstars. And you can be too! The spring 5k celebration will be on Saturday, May 14 at City Park. Go to www.gotrnola.org to register. You can also enter to win two race registrations here.
Get a good run in, support Girls on the Run New Orleans and we'll see you at the finish line with big smiles on our faces, too!
