Fall 5k was a success!

Over 950 participants braved the cold and wind as they ran, jogged, walked, or skipped across the finish line at the fall Girls on the Run 5k presented by Memorial Health System on November 8th!

The 460 program girls were joined by their coaches, practice partners, family and friends at Lincoln Land Community College for a morning of fun activities including Happy Hair, Face Painting, and Mean Stinks.

Then it was time to line up and head out on the course through Lincoln Land Community College, down Shepherd Road and into the North Lake Shore Subdivision. Excited family and friends lined the course to cheer the participants on.

As each participant crossed the finish line it was clear by the smiles and excitement that it didn’t matter what the time clock said, but rather the sense of accomplishment they felt! We are so very proud of each and every participant who set the goal of completing the 5k and achieved it!
