BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF THE GREATER CHESAPEAKE
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2015
Girls on the Run of the Greater Chesapeake is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary Ironman triathlete. Today there are more than 230 locations across the United States and Canada, with new locations added every year. Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem and strong values through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
