Girls on the Run tries to empower women
By Emily Aviles and Brisbonnie Topete Figueroa
Girls on the Run is a community of girls which aims to encourage young teen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles.
According to Expeditions teacher Brooke Hein, her goal is to ”bring the girls together and build leadership in the community and create a space where girls can talk about common issues they are facing.”
Everest freshman Christy Pilch said Girls on the Run will help her in the future by “encouraging other girls to exercise and to be appreciative of their body no matter what other people say.”
