“Girls on the Run”
My friend was volunteering as a coach for this program called Girls On The Run. This program is centered around elementary school girls training for a 5k run. When it came time for the run my friend asked me several times if I wanted to come and be a running buddy with one of the girls. Honestly, I didn't really want to go especially since it was early in the morning but I ended up going anyways and I cannot say how glad I am that I went. My running buddy was one of the most determined fourth graders I had ever met. She was so motivated to beat her time and it was so fun to cross the finish line with her. When I saw how proud her parents were of her it made me glad that I had the opportunity of being part of something that was so important to her and her family.
