Alerus | JUN 10, 2016

Event Was Sponsored by Alerus Mortgage

Over 1,000 people gathered in Bloomington, Minnesota, on the cool, cloudy morning of June 4 for the Girls on the Run Spring 5k, an event marking the end of a successful 10-week, 20-lesson GOTR season. GOTR is a non-profit program for girls in grades three through eight, and its mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. The curriculum, which is experience-based and creatively integrates running, has been installed at more than 60 schools across the Twin Cities, and has been a rousing success. 

The GOTR Spring 5k is a non-competitive event where the girls, along with their running buddies, get a chance to celebrate everything they achieved over the course of the curriculum. Finishing the 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement and helps them see that they can reach the goals they set for themselves in life. 

Girls on the Run is dedicated to creating a world where every girls understands and activates her potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Running is used as a tool to inspire and motivate the girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Alerus Mortgage is pleased to have sponsored this event for the last two years.

Thank you to Anderson Race Management, Normandale Community College and all the volunteers and running buddies who helped make this event come alive for the girls and for everyone who participated!
