The idea of Girls on the Run is simple, to get young people involved in the sport.
The nonprofit encourages girls to sign-up for the 10-week program to learn more about running. This spring season starts March 11th and runs through May 23rd.
In the meantime, coaches teach girls lessons. These range from body positivity to kindness, and bullying.
At the end of the 10-weeks, Girls on the Run ends with a 5k Race, on May 19th at Purdue Fort Wayne. Girls on the Run is inviting the entire community to a pre-party before the 5k, that starts at 4:00 p.m.
The 5k race starts at 5:30 p.m.
