Girls on the Run

October 13, 2011

Emerson’s Girls on the Run are off to good start this season, aiming for a 5K event in November. You might see the girls, grades 3-5, working out on the athletic field where they gather twice a week after school.

Look closer – the Girls on the Run program is about much more than running.  The goal is to put preteen girls on a life-long path to healthy lifestyles, teamwork and self-respect.

Special appreciation goes to coaches Linda Lakshminarayanan, Emerson’s Librarian, and Colleen Killen, Director of Business Operations, who give their time, energy and enthusiasm.

Watch the girls go, every one of them!
