Girls on the Run Spring Practice 5K
Thursday, April 30th, 5pm
425 Claywoods Parkway
Letter to Parents/Guardians...
This will be a great week at GOTR! We talk about friendship and practice for our 5K. In Lesson 15, there are lots of things for us to discuss about friendship. Most importantly, we identify the qualities we look for in our friends and some of the struggles girls can face in a friendship. The girls also learn that it is important to choose friends. Intentionally cultivating a friendship is a powerful idea!
In Lesson 16, the girls continue to build their confidence by completing a practice 5K! This is a fun way to show the girls they can set a goal and accomplish it. We are also able to discuss areas of improvement to work on before the season-ending 5K. Ask your girl to show you the certificate she received for completing the practice 5K!
