Southport Middle School Girls on the Run 5K

Southport’s Heart & Sole team had a fabulous time as they completed their 2018 Girls on the Run 5K this past weekend. After completing a 10-week course, you could see the sense of accomplishment as the girls made it through to the finish line alongside their running buddy.

Heart & Sole is a transformational physical activity based program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. “The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The program teaches life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event.”

A special thank you to the running buddies, teachers, parents and community members, who ran along with the girls and cheered them on throughout the 3.1 mile run.
