At the end of each season, we hold a Celebratory 5k for the girls in our program. Throughout the 10-week program, the girls train to complete a 5k. This process teaches them about goal setting and working to achieve a goal. We have about 350 girls that travel from eight counties to complete the 5k together. Each girl has an adult Running Buddy that will be on the course with her at all times to encourage her and make sure she is safe.
Immediately before the 5k, we also hold an Expo for the girls to do activities (face painting, Happy Hair, rock painting, etc.) to get pumped up for the 5k. The event is family friendly and adds to the Celebration of what they have worked so hard for.
The event usually has over 1000 people in attendance and requires many volunteers to make it a success!
We need volunteers to help with course support, water stop, set up, clean up, registration, activities, etc.
