The River Run-
The Downriver River Run is an annual fundraising event for the Downriver Family YMCA's Strong Kids Campaign. The River Run is a fun run for all ages. This year, the Downriver Family YMCA is sponsoring runners with all proceeds benefitting Girls on the Run.
What is Girls on the Run? GOTR is an experimental program that inspires girls to be healthy and confident, using a fun, experience based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The Girls on the Run season concludes with a 5k celebratory event. The Downriver Family YMCA is hoping to sponsor 52 girls through The River Run. The cost of the program is $110 per girl.
This incredible program isn’t just about getting girls out to run, it’s about encouraging healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls, inspiring self-respect and developing positive physical, emotional and social well-being. Whether you are able to donate $25 or sponsor a girl, please know you are making a difference in the development of our young girls!
