180 girls from the regional program Girls on the Run-Sierras will run their celebratory 5K during the Truckee Running Festival. The girls will be joined by their coaches and running buddies (family and friends of Girls on the Run). This 5K event is a celebration of the achievements of the Girls on the Run program. Through this program girls in the 3rd-8th grade develop confidence, improve strength of character, gain competence, learn the importance of care and connection in their community. They do this through a curriculum that creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run-Sierras is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 200+ locations across the United States and Canada. Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Come out to cheer on the Girls on the Run girls, or join in the fun yourself through signing up to volunteer or run the timed 5K. A proceeds of the timed 5K will go back to the Girls on the Run-Sierras program.
