Fort Plain’s Girls on the Run team has been working hard to prepare for a 5K race in early June, but they are building more than athletic skills.

The team’s practices have been filled with life lessons, fun talks, friendship building and empowerment. They are excited to enter the second half of the season and looking forward to their race.

Girls on the Run is a twice-weekly, afterschool program for 5th and 6th grade students where trained volunteers lead girls through interactive lessons and movement activities, culminating in a celebratory 5K in June.
