Girls on the Run 5k @ Mattoon Area Family YMCA
Nov 9 @ 9:00 am

Girls on the Run of East Central Illinois will host its 5k event on Saturday, November 9 at the Mattoon Area Family YMCA. Girls on the Run is a physical activity based, positive youth program (PA-PYD) that uses fun running games and dynamic discussions to teach life skills to girls in 3rd to 8th grade. During the ten week program, girls participate in lessons that foster confidence, build peer connections and encourage community service while they prepare for an end-of-season celebratory 5k event.

Participation in this 5k event is open to the public and all proceeds from the event will benefit Girls on the Run of East Central Illinois. Registration includes an event shirt and a finisher’s medal. **To be guaranteed the event shirt, participants must register by October 11, 2019. For registrations received after this date, shirts will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last.
