do you have a daughter or know a girl in 3rd through 8th grade? if you do, you'll want to learn more about this wonderful new program called Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a life-changing after school, character development program for pre-teen girls. they use the power of running and exercise to help girls discover the confidence they need in the critical pre-teen years and beyond.
this past saturday, our local chapter of Girls on the Run held their first annual 5K run on U F campus. two of my good friends, pam hess and jennifer bleiweis, are the directors and asked if i could help document the event. event photographer i am not, but i did my best to capture the spirit of the day. i loved watching the young girls get excited to run and seeing their proud faces at the finish line. and with over 100 people registered, it was a successful first race!
