The community is invited to celebrate on July 23, 2010 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the South Park Community Center.

SATURDAY MORNING: Girls on the Run(r) of Puget Sound Superhero 5K Fun Run/Walk, 10 a.m. at Seward Park: The community is invited to run, walk or cheer on more than 300 grade-school girls as they run the New Balance Girls on the Run(r) 5K, Sat. May 22 at 10 a.m. The fun run/walk is at Seward Park , 5895 Lake Washington Blvd. S, and is open to all members of the public. And yes, capes and costumes are encouraged. The event benefits the Girls on the Run(r) of Puget Sound, a non-profit organization that operates an after-school fitness and empowerment program for pre-teen girls. More than a fundraiser, the 5K is the crowning achievement for 300 third, fourth, and fifth-grade girls currently participating in the 10-week, character-development program. The program combines lessons on life skills such as handling bullies, setting goals and making good decisions with physical fitness skills for a non-competitive 5K event. The goal of Girls on the Run is to arm pre-teen girls with the inner-strength to help get them through the personal trials of the upcoming adolescent years. Girls are particularly vulnerable to a decline in self-esteem during their adolescence, but a high level of general self-worth and a good attitude toward physical activity can be protective factors. Race details and registration are available at the Girls on the Run of Puget Sound website: http://www.girlsrun.org/5k.html. Check out last season’s 5k video.
