Representing four counties, they seize the opportunity to live to their fullest potential thanks to Girls on the Run.

“They’re able to express themselves in a safe environment. Our team has 8 girls so we’re very close, and they get to interact with girls outside of their grade as well which is very important.
And they feed off of each other, inspire each other. They encourage each other. We give energy awards after each work out,” explains Board Member Kristin King

What they take away — is inspiring.
