Congratulations to all of our girls, and their families, who participated in the Girls on t
LET ME RUN INAUGURAL 5K!
Congrats to the Let Me Run boys on an amazing race on Nov 4, 2023! We hope they feel proud of their hard work and accomplishments this season. We speak for all the coaches in saying that it's been a joy to get to know this team and run with them these past seven weeks.
The first race finisher was Jaxon Palmer, 5th grader at GFES and member of the inaugural Let Me Run team. His finishing time was 21:10

RUNNING COACHES NEEDED FOR BOYS & GIRLS PROGRAMS
Coaches are needed for Girls on the Run and the new Let Me Run programs this fall. Head Coach Kelly Singer is looking for committed, enthusiastic parent volunteers to join the coaching team as head coaches and assistant coaches. Training is available and while prior running experience is encouraged, it's not required. We had an awesome group of coaches last year and are looking forward to another great season. It's a rewarding experience and you'll get in shape, too!
