Reed Stoops, left, president of the Juneau Community Foundation Board of Directors, and Ken Leghorn, right, Juneau Community Foundation executive director, present Ati Nasiah, AWARE council director, with a $500 donation on Oct. 27. The Juneau Community Foundation made the donation on behalf of the Leghorn Family Fund to support Girls on the Run of Juneau, an empowerment and prevention program for third- to eighth-grade girls, which combines training for a 5k running event with healthy living and self-esteem enhancing curriculum. Part of the donation also will help expand AWARE's current after-school programs in Juneau and Southeast Alaska. For more information or to become a coach or volunteer, contact Nasiah at 586-6623 or look online at www.awareak.org.
