As we kick off our spring program of Girls on the Run, we are thrilled to announce that we have now registered over 5,000 participants through our local program! This is an exciting milestone for us to achieve locally as we also reach a huge milestone nationally. Collectively, Girls on the Run will register their one millionth girl!
Our spring season will bring over 50 teams, 650 girls, and 250 coaches together to make a lasting impact on the lives of girls in central Illinois! Welcome to first-time program locations: Cathedral (Springfield), Central Elementary (Lincoln), Memorial Elementary (Taylorville), New-Holland Middletown (Middletown), Waverly Elementary (Waverly), Woodrow Wilson Primary School (Peoria), Decatur Family YMCA (Decatur), and Christian County YMCA (Taylorville)!
Our program participants are just starting off on their 10-week journey to become more confident, healthy and connected to their community. Thank you to all the parents/guardians, girls, volunteers, and partner sites who make this program possible. We’ll see you at the “One in A Million” Spring 5k on May 16th!
