SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) Sugar House Park was covered in pink Saturday morning with almost two-thousand girls and volunteers who came together for the 10th Annual Girls on the Run 5K.
“As we commemorate our 10th year of running strong in Utah, we celebrate the expansion of this life-changing program into seven counties, as we now reach as far north as Cache County,” said Stacy Ulch, program director, Girls on the Run Utah.
The non-profit organization focuses on third-grade to eighth-grade girls. Volunteer coaches meet with the girls twice a week during the twelve-week program to teach lessons that promote physical, emotional and mental development.
