Girls on the Run Georgia is our official beneficiary for the 2024 Galentine's Day 5k! Girls on the Run offers evidence-based afterschool programs that inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. Because their coaches are trained in building supportive girl groups and part of their curriculum teaches girls how to be a good friend and choose good friends, we thought they'd be a natural fit as the beneficiary for this race! We are particularly supporting their scholarship fund, so that Girls on the Run programs can be for EVERY girl!
Thank you to our amazing sponsors!
