Girls on the Run of Greater Boston Will Host 5k Event on Saturday June 11th at Boston College
Girls on the Run of Greater Boston will host its end-of-season 5k event on Saturday June 11th at 9:00 am at Boston College. Girls on the Run is a physical-activity based, positive youth development (PA-PYD) program that prepares 3rd to 8th grade girls for a 5k event along with helping them develop key life skills. The program takes place in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and has been inspiring girls to recognize their limitless potential for 20 years.
Volunteer-led teams meet twice a week throughout the season and participate in lessons that prepare the girls for a 5k event, foster the girls’ confidence, help them build connections with their peers and encourage meaningful contribution to their community through a service project.
The Greater Boston area 5k event is open to the public and will be held at Boston College on Saturday June 11th. The cost to participate is $30 and includes the event fee and event shirt, and goes towards the Girls on the Run Program.
The event will begin at 9:00 am, and early arrival is suggested. For more information about the event, how to register and volunteer opportunities, visit www.girlsontherunboston.org
