Girls on the Run of the Southern Tier envisions a world where every girl knows and activates their limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue their dreams!
On November 9th, I was asked to photograph an event called Girls on the run 5k. It was a rather cool, cloudy day, although I don't know the exact count, I bet there were over 100 participants for the days activities at the James Street Park in Hornell, NY. Teams from the Hornell, NY Area and Bradford, NY area participated.
Girls on the Run fosters self esteem through physical, social and mental activities and gives every girl the opportunity to feel a sense of achievement through training and running a 5k race.
Established in 1996, in Charlotte, NC, Girls on the run started with just 13 girls, and provides young girls with the necessary strengths to handle life's experiences. In 2013, Girls on the Run hosted over 250 5k races in the US and Canada via thousands of volunteers.
Keep up the great work guys!
