Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization that uses running to empower young girls age eight to thirteen. The Girls on the Run Rockies started in 2005 with four sites and ninety girls. The program has grown to 220 sites and 4,000 girls. Through grants and fundraising the program supports fifty percent of the participants that are low-income. Girls on the Run builds confidence in young girls and helps them feel comfortable with who they naturally are as young women. The program teaches self-respect and healthy living. The ten week Spring session concludes with more than 2,000 girls in the program running their first 5K in City Park.
The eight annual Girls on the Run 5K will take place on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at City Park. Click here for the route map. Support Girls on the Run by running in this 5K.
