The skies were overcast and the temperature a bit chilly for the recent Susquehanna Valley chapter’s Girls on the Run fall 5k race, but spirits ran high for the 700 participants. After registration, the day started with some warm-up Zumba dancing, then the racers (actually most people walked) wound their way through Selinsgrove before finishing at Susquehanna University’s Field House.
Like the group’s Spring race, all the entrants received bottled spring water, courtesy of Wilson Orthodontics. And the event – and our donation – was a big hit. “This is fantastic…thanks Dr. Wilson!,” commented Cheryl Stumpf, executive director of the local GOTR chapter.
Girls on the Run encourages its members to reach their full potential, empowering them with a heightened sense of joy, self-confidence and physical, spiritual and emotional health. The organization has changed more than one million lives, one girl at a time…what better cause to support?
