Girls on the Run

This Saturday, May 20th, twenty-four fourth graders from Christopher House elementary school are participating in the Girls on the Run 5K!

They’ve been training for months and just last month, they were able to go to Dick’s Sporting Goods at New City to pick new shoes for the race!

The trip was made possible due to the generosity of two fourth graders, and a seventh grader from Chicago’s Latin School who held a bake sale to raise the $750 for our girls. Our students are learning about running and athleticism, but also self-confidence and how they can help their community.

Our runners still need partners for the big day! If you’re interested in running or walking you can register here. If you can’t come, but want to make a gift in their honor you can do so here.

As the girls say, “Girls on the Run. So much fun!”
