AWARE: Girls/Boys on the Run 5k
Come help us celebrate kids at the Girls on the Run and Boys Run: I toowú klatseen 5k fun run! The 5k is the culminating event of both 10-week programs, and teaches kids that if they set a goal and work to achieve it they can do anything! This is a fun event that celebrates all the hard work that girls have put in. Come join us! We have almost 70 girls and 26 boys participating this season along with their running buddies and family, so we need lots of help to make this the best 5k it can be! We need volunteers to help with celebration activities, cheering the kids during the run, and cleaning up afterwards.
