HES Girls on the Run Program Inspires Girl Empowerment

June 2022

Twenty-five Highlands Elementary 3rd & 4th grade girls participated in this year's Girls on the Run, a fun, evidence-based program that inspires girl empowerment by building confidence, kindness, and decision-making skills. The girls met twice a week from March through May to build confidence and learn other important life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running! The culminating event of the program was a 5K Race, which was held on May 22, 2022 at the Waterfront in Homestead. 

Congratulations to this year's GOTR Program participants Ella Brauch, Lily Cale, Stella Day, Addison Dorinsky, Aubriana Dunmire, Juniper Grayson, Aryana Kern, Olivia King, Mackenzie Klein, Arabella Linderman, Gabby Linderman, Hannah Marcy, Miriam Mitchell, Aoife Murphy, Emily Neese, Carolina Negron, Savannah Sanders, Grace Screen, Isabella Simpson, Abby Stawinski, Aria Tran, Kendall Walter, Hadley Walter, Dakoda Wright, and Fiona Zewe!
