EmBe 5K

The EmBe 5K is a non-competitive run that supports Girls on the Run, Heart & Sole and Let Me Run programs.  Prior to this event girls and boys across the area have been participating in a 7-10 week after school program.  Volunteer coaches lead lessons focused on healthy living, confidence building and creating healthy relationships. Researched curriculum comes alive through interactive running games.  Each participant has set a personal goal to complete a 5K race.  This event gives each girl and boy a sense of achievement and the framework for setting and accomplishing life goals as they grow.  Come join us and be inspired and an integral part of their journey!  We will need volunteers to help in a few different areas: set up and take down, route helpers, finish line assistance and sag walkers.
