BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY
EVENT: The RaiseForWomen Challenge
EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013
Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County uses the power of running to teach girls that they can do ANYTHING!
It is an after school fitness and empowerment program for girls in 3rd - 8th grades that aims to help girls face the negative pressures society can create. GOTR combines training for a non-competitive 5k event with lessons to teach self respect and healthy living. Girls meet twice per week after school for 12 weeks, and are led by trained coaches. The program is for every girl, regardless of fitness level, size or shape!
On Sunday, May 19th girls from all over LA County will come together for a day of celebration at our spring season 5K. Running or walking along side family and community members, over 300 girls will honor their hard work and achievements over the last 12 weeks but completing this 5K. If you want to experience the power of our program, join us on May 19th at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for for this very special day.
