Presentation for participants.

Girls Run the World (GRTW) program which currently services three major high schools in Aurora, IL. Created to esteem young ladies ages 14-18, GRTW has already proven to be a pivotal program in the lives of participants by teaching the principles of conflict resolution, coping skills, leadership development, and effective communication. We aim to continue the caliber of excellence by offering events that foster the physical well being and celebration of program participants.

The Girls Run the World 5K will directly benefit the Girls Run the World program and participants. We thank you in advance for helping the young women in our community grow and succeed.
