Family Fan Club at Girls on the Run - Denver

Family Fan Club was invited to participate in Girls on the Run - Denver 5k this past weekend and we had a blast. It was a beautiful morning, perfect morning for running. If you're unfamiliar with Girls on the Run, here's a synopsis of what the organization is all about:

Girls on the Run® (GOTR) of Denver uses the power of running to change the way girls see themselves and their opportunities! It is an innovative health education and wellness program that uniquely combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk event with life-changing, self esteem enhancing lessons that encourage healthy habits and an active lifestyle in 8-13 year old girls. Girls learn to stretch themselves - physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally - and in the process, gain the skills needed to live a life full of self-respect and healthy habits.

There were hundreds of girls, often running in teams of family & friends with participation more than doubling from 2008. Girls on the Run is doing great work with innovative programs to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. Read all about Girls on the Run objectives, approach, expectations and academic evaluation.

Family Fan Club was happy to be part of the day. We temporary tattoo'd about 75 girls with Run Like a Girl tattoos. We also created special edition Run Like a Girl t-shirts for participants, family and friends with 10% of sales donated to Girls on the Run - Denver.
