Valley girls are "Girls on the Run"

Fifteen Fayston girls who participated in Girls on the Run and their
Lori Rush, Ali Hobart and Melissa Roberts.

This past Saturday several Valley third-, fourth- and fifth-grade girls participated in a 5K run held at the Essex Fairgrounds. This was the culminating event for Girls on the Run, a positive youth development program that combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. The core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls' development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. For the past several months, the girls have been learning and working together, along with their coaches. The Girls on the Run Vermont 5K Run/Walk events are non-competitive (untimed) events where everyone is a winner and everyone has a number on their event bib. More than 7,000 enthusiastic girls, families and community members participated in the events this past spring.
