Elementary Schools to Host Girl Power 5K/Fun Run

girlpowerNCCS elementary schools will host the Girl Power Fun Run/5K at NCHS on May 17!  This event was organized to celebrate the accomplishments of our girls’ fitness clubs in our three elementary schools.   Please see attached flyer.  This is a great opportunity to encourage our girls and connect with families in our community.  All participants may choose to complete a one mile “fun run” (or walk!) or a 5K.  The event is free, but all participants are asked to bring a canned good to donate.  A complimentary breakfast will be available at the conclusion of the run.
Participation this year is open to the following:  girls in these programs, their families, elementary school staff, and central office staff only. 
If you are interested in running/walking with us, please notify the counselor at your school or you can email me directly.  Please contact Katie Cunningham at
