Run girls, run!

It was a stampede of pink as Loveland fourth grade girls joined teams of female students from across the region Saturday, May 11, in downtown Cincinnati for the Girls on the Run (GOTR) 5K.
“Girls on the Run is a program designed especially for young women,” said Jill Hanson, Loveland Early Childhood Center reading specialist and GOTR coach. “The emphasis is on promoting positive self-esteem and making good choices – and, we run, of course!”
Hanson said a total of 28 Loveland Elementary School students participated in the run.
“Loveland Middle School actually hosted a practice 5K race for the team prior to the real event,” said Hanson. “It was a great success for the girls, coaches and parents!”
