Hilltop students prepare to do a practice run of their June 5K.Hilltop Elementary School’s Girls on the Run program began practice this May for the Girls on the Run Twin Cities 5K that will be held at Mall of America. Throughout the school year, students have been building confidence and learning strategies for a healthy life with curriculum that incorporates running. The girls have been making progress on the 5K with their running buddies so they will be ready to run with more than 2,500 girls from the local area. As the girls were running, Spartan Kids’ Care students cheered them on and held signs of encouragement as they passed.

Parents and friends are welcome to join the Girls on the Run Twin Cities 5K on Sunday, June 3. The event will start day-of registration at 7:30 AM at Mall of America and students will be able to enjoy pre-race activities, such as music, pictures, and the Dream Team tent where 10 inspirational women will talk about their unique careers. The run will start at 9:00 AM, and Hilltop students will run with the Purple Wave. Registration and more information is available at www.gotrtwincities.org.
