Link IB World School Joins “Girls on the Run”

Link's Girls on the Run! Girls on the Run is a North American non-profit program that works to encourage pre-teen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games, culminating in a celebratory 5k run.


This is our first year participating in the after school program created to inspire young girls to be confident, healthy and energetic. This engaging program creatively integrates running with character development lessons. Our first group of girls demonstrated strength, cooperation and kindness toward each other. Their actions inspired all the coaches and the parents. Congratulations Girls!  Barbara Moore, Nurse, Jeanne Butler, Special Education Teacher, and Lauren Haugh, proudly facilitated the after school meetings and the "Run" making this wonderful experience come alive for our students!
