Girls on the Run Practice 5K: Saturday, March 15th!

Thursday March 6, 2014

Come cheer on our Girls on the Run team as they practice their 5K on Saturday March 15 at 9:15 am at the Northwest Cary Facility! Please drive extra carefully in and around the facility as we will be running to and from our campus.  UNC Wellness Center is thoroughly enjoying our first time hosting Girls on the Run.  These 3rd through 5th Grade girls are bright, sensitive, and open; it is really such an honor to listen and learn from them.  They are all getting strong and trying  hard with their running.  On Saturday March 15, we will do a practice 5K from the front door, down Yates Store Road, and back.  Many of the girls will be run/walking this, as they’ve never gone this far.  This run is just to give them an idea of how long they will be running in April, for their actual 5K.  We know from personal experience, runners love to hear lots of encouragement!  Please take this time to invest in the health and well-being of our awesome kids!  If you are interested in volunteering during the event, please contact Susan Kroll at  It won’t take much time, but it would be wonderful to have added hands for safety and encouragement.  Thanks so much for making this a community event!
