Girls on the Run

This spring’s Girls on the Run 5K run will be held at Riverbend Elementary School’s covered area at 10 a.m. Saturday. Girls on the Run helps prepare girls in elementary and middle school for a lifetime of self respect and healthy living.

We are looking for volunteers to act as running buddies, face painters, hair stylists and sign makers and to participate in the general coordination of the event. If you are interested in volunteering, or if your business or organization is interested in sponsoring a table at the event, please contact Katie Smith at Community members are also invited to come support runners.

With questions, contact Electra Gardinier, Office Manager for the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault at or at 586-3650.
