End of the season 5K Run has finally arrived!

From coast to coast, girls are participating locally in the spring 2012 5k run. There will be over 122 locations participating in this exciting event! Girls on the Run Tucson celebrates the end of its fourth season this weekend with a 5k run on the TMC campus. What a sight it will be watching all these girls from 13 different Tucson elementary schools, decked out in bright yellow Girls on the Run tees, complete their very first 5K! Accompanying each girl is what is known as their “running buddy”-a family member or friend running side by side with each girl. Before the race, the girls excited to get started, will warm up with Zumba. At the end of that event, they will then stop at the Happy Hair Station and dress their do up with amazing hair décor and fun coloring and take off for the running! Stationed along the path will be plenty of well wishers cheering them along the way. After crossing the finishline each Girl on the Run Tucson graduate will recieve a medal of achievement presented by the program sponser, Aetna. Girls on the Run will have a blast on this eventful day!
