Girls On the Run DC - Community 5K Race

May 17, 2014

Zontians ran and cheered on DC young girls during the May Girls on the Run (GOTR) Community Race event.

The girls of the Friendship Woodbridge School of Washington donned superhero capes and showed a strong finish at Anacostia Park. Participants and cheerleaders rallied in support of "Power to the She." Thanks to Carol Widmayer, Tracy Nagelbush, Sonya Baskerville, and Jo Caver for representing the Club for Race Day.

You'll want to read the girls' reflections on what the experience meant to them in an email sent from the school sponsor to Zonta Club of Washington, D.C. President Sonya Baskerville. One of the girls writes that 'being a Girl on the Run means choosing to make good choices.' Thank You Letter
