Who Run the World? Girls!
On November 19, the Stevenson Elementary School third through fifth grade girls participated in the Girls on the Run and STRIDE Celebratory 5KRun on Belle Isle in Detroit.
Nine phenomenal students, along with Coach Janet, Coach Marissa, Stevenson staff member coaches Carlis Gaddis and Dezia Harper participated in the event and all who participated had an amazing time.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in third through the eighth grade. The organization teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
