2,300 take part in Girls on the Run event
More than 2,300 participants and 68 teams gathered June 1 for the Girls on the Run South Central Wisconsin 5K event at Middleton High School, the culminating moment of the Girls on the Run season.
“The finish line is truly just the beginning for our participants. The completion of the 5K shows our girls what they can accomplish when they set a goal, prepare meaningfully, and work in partnership with their teammates and coaches. The 5K is a beautiful display of their limitless potential.” Christine Benedict, executive director, said.
