Registration to begin for Girls on the Run

CRYSTAL LAKE – Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois has set the registration for its spring program.

Registration will go live at 10 a.m. Wednesday on the organization's website, www.gotrnwil.org. The organization is expects to serve more than 1,000 girls throughout McHenry and DeKalb counties this season, and several locations are apt to fill up in the first hours of registration.

“We have been preparing for our largest season ever by training new coaches and gaining additional sponsors,” Girls on the Run Executive Director Laurie Dayon said. The nonprofit expanded to include programs in Rockford.

Girls on the Run empowers girls in third through eighth grade through activities designed to help them make good choices for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The organization's mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.

Locations for programs can be found at www.gotrnwil.org/locations.html.

“The enthusiasm for Girls on the Run and its growth has been amazing," said Kelly Lancaster, Girls on the Run coach and board member. "I think if you go to the 5K and see the girls as they cross the finish line, it's impossible not to be moved by their strength."
