Girls On The Run: You’re invited to this Saturday’s 5K

It’s not happening in West Seattle, but lots of West Seattleites are involved – and organizers are hoping for more. We’ve heard from Heather and Jo, West Seattle volunteers, about the upcoming Girls on the Run of Puget Sound 5K this Saturday at Seward Park. GOTR is a coaching program for girls and has 5K’s twice a year as a “graduation” of sorts. It’s not just for program participants – Heather explains that it’s a fun run for everyone, keyword, FUN! “You can run or walk with leashed dogs, kids, strollers. It’s non-competitive, and it’s not timed – just a great way to spend a Saturday in the beautiful outdoors supporting a program that makes a difference in the lives of girls. If you have kids, it’s a great way to expose them to healthy living and positive reinforcement. PLEASE come and support this amazing organization! I hope you’ll consider running, jogging, and/or walking with us at Seward Park on May 21st. You can sign up here – girlsrun.org – you, your friends, your kids – anyone. The more the merrier, and it’s for a great cause. We also really encourage guys to come out too and support the girls. Dads, brothers – it’s not just for girls and moms. If running or walking a 5k isn’t in the cards for you, please consider participating as a volunteer. We need to recruit more than 80 volunteers to do everything from cheering along the route to photographing the event. Interested in learning more? Click the link.”

    If you look closely you will see that all runners get bib number 1. I love that!
