WPIG Volunteers at Girls on the Run Spring 5K!!

Girls on the Run® inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Their core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors. 20140510_165711668_iOS

Several WPIG members attended the May 10th 5K race and helped with set-up, handing out water and cheering on the runners! It was an amazing day full of smiles and laughter.  It was clear the girls and their coaches felt a great sense of accomplishment as they crossed the finish line!
