Horizon wrapped up its first season of Girls on the Run on May 19th. We were lucky enough to have a full group with twenty girls and seven coaches participating. The session began back in March and we completed our Community Impact Project on Tuesday, May 17th. The girls loved surprising the Horizon staff with fresh lemonade and then working with our custodians on the daily care of our school.
A highlight for the girls and their families, as well as the coaches, was running the EmBe 5K on Saturday, May 5th. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and a crowd of over 1,500 people cheering us on! These girls and coaches ended the season feeling energized and motivated after spending 10 weeks exercising together, discussing friendships, self-esteem, the power of positivity and believing in oneself.
