Positively Influential

n Girls on the Run, you make the most of everything. You accept. You appreciate. You welcome. You encourage. You include. You adjust. You learn. You work. You celebrate. You smile. The national program is in its second year in Dubois County and has already more than doubled in size. Last Saturday was the grand finale, a 3.1-mile run on the heels of a three-month curriculum in which third-, fourth- and fifth-grade girls met twice a week to blend fitness with self-confidence and self-discovery. It’s a program that can change a girl (and those around) her for the better.
