OME Girls On The Run - 5K Event - Over 700 Participants this Year!

May 20, 2018

At the end of the 10-week Girls on the Run season, all of the girls in the 15 county territory will participate in Community 5k Event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience within the GOTR curriculum. Girl set running goals over the course of the program which helps prepare them for the final event. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when your girl realizes that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

Congratulations to Ainsley Lambert for being the first OME runner to make it across the finish line with a time of 28 minutes!  WOW!  Way to GO Ainsley!!!!
