In a recent press release from Girls on the Run of the Treasure Coast, “Southport Middle School made history with eleven brave and beautiful girls who met for their first session of Girls on Track in St. Lucie County. The Girls on Track program, for girls in 6th through 8th grade, uses an experience-based curriculum which integrates running to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. The interactive curriculum is fun and challenging, covering meaningful topics such as self-awareness, building healthy relationships, and developing personal strengths while engaging in physical activities. The curriculum also includes lessons specifically devoted to a community service project completed by each team. Each girl will complete a 5K at the end of the season with a volunteer running buddy. This awesome team is led by volunteer coaches Kimberly Nicholas, Kathy Osking, Mildred Bernard and Kathleen Manchester.”
