Girls on the Run Help Hoos Heal

04152015_GOTR_Blog_350

Both the Grades 3 & 4 and Grades 5 & 6 Girls on the Run teams were up bright and early on April 12 to participate in the Hoos Heal 5K in support of the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital.

The race was a community service opportunity as both teams worked together to design and create motivational posters to hang at the start and finish lines. Their signs were a wonderful addition to the event, and the girls were enthusiastic cheerleaders for other runners.

In recognition for their service, the race organizers invited the girls to run the race. Many of those who chose to do so ended up placing in their age group!
