Girls on the Run of East Central Illinois will host its 5k event on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at the Mattoon Area Family YMCA. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that uses fun running games and dynamic discussions to teach life skills to girls in 3rd-8th grades. During the ten-week program, girls participate in lessons that foster confidence, build peer connections and encourage community service while they prepare for an end-of-season celebratory 5k event.
Participation in the 5k event on Saturday, November 11 is open to the public and all proceeds from the event will benefit Girls on the Run of East Central Illinois. Registration includes an event shirt if registered by October 13, 2017. For registrations received after Oct 13, 2017, t-shirts will be available on a first come, first serve basis while supplies last. Participants also receive a finisher’s medal.
