Exciting news: Girls on the Run is returning to Lake Harriet Upper and Lower this fall! Girls on the Run is an afterschool program that uses the power of running to prepare 3rd - 5th grade girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Over the course of the 10-week, 20-lesson season, girls learn life-changing lessons about healthy friendships, teamwork, decision-making, self-respect and more, all while preparing to run a 5k. Open to all 3rd - 5th grade girls; no previous running experience required, and need-based financial aid is available. Register today! Our Fall 2017 season will be each Tuesday & Thursday 4:05-5:35 at Lower and 4:15-5:45 at Upper from Sept 6 - Nov 14, culminating with the Girls on the Run 5k on November 11. Upper campus team still has several openings, and Lower campus team is full, though 3rd graders are able to join the upper campus team.
