[October 27, 2014]
– Girls on the Run of Central Illinois invites you to join them for
the fall Girls on the Run “Realize Your Limitless Potential 5k”
presented by Memorial Health System. This non-competitive run/walk
will be held on Saturday, November 8th at Lincoln Land Community
College in Springfield, in celebration of the fall 2014 Girls on the
Run program participants.
The fall season of the 10-week Girls on the Run
program is coming to a close. More than 450 third through eighth
grade girls at 35 area schools and community sites are participating
in the Girls on the Run and Girls on Track curriculum, which focuses
on teaching self-respect and healthy lifestyle choices. The program
season ends with the 5k event that celebrates their training. The
event is open to the entire community. Family, friends and community
supporters of all ages and abilities are encouraged to register to
run or walk the course with the girls.
The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with a family-friendly festival that
includes face and hair painting, fun activities, and photo
opportunities. The race start time is 10:00 a.m. and medals will be
distributed at the finish line to all finishers. Post-race
activities will take place until noon on race day.
