Girls On The Run

Eighty three girls who have been training for 10 weeks will run a 5K Saturday morning, which will begin at the Boathouse in downtown Wichita.

The runners have been part of a program sponsored by the non-profit Girls On The Run of Sedgwick County, which came to Wichita last February and does more for these girls than just teach them how to race.

Incorporated into the training routines are lessons to help young girls deal with real world, difficult situations like bullying.
