Students at Yahara Elementary School involved in the Girls on the Run program, along with their coaches Laurie Krause and Sarah Stoufer, held a bake sale last week at the school and raised $85. The funds were used to purchase three turkey dinners for Yahara families. Yahara and Morrisonville Elementary School staff also contributed funds to purchase another eight dinners, which were delivered to families on Monday, November 21.
Girls on the Run® is a experiential learning program for girls age eight to thirteen years old. The program combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls in order to help prevent the display of at-risk activities in the future.
