A Culminating Event for She's A Runner Girl
For the first 7 years, the She’s A Runner Girl program culminated with participation in the annual Hapi-ness 5K through the Laramie Junior High. In 2018, She’s A Runner Girl established its own race, the Purple 5K Run, which allows us to end the program with our very own awards ceremony and send off for the 6th grade girls leaving the program.
While the Purple 5K Run is a race, complete with timing and medals, the race is about more than that. Over the course of the She’s A Runner Girl Program, we work up to running a distance of 5K, and the race is about our runner girls reaching this goal, powering through the distance, and showing themselves that with hard work and a little sweat, anything is possible.
