Edmunds Girls are on the Run

Edmunds Elementary girls from grades 3rd through 5th grade participated in the “Girls on the Run” 5K at Raccoon River Park. The Girls on the Run club had met twice a week for 10 weeks at Edmunds to prepare for this event. Each week they would run, play games and do activities promoting a healthy body and mind and making healthy choices in life. Edmunds teachers Chelsie Anderson and Michelle Nelson coached the girls while participating in a variety of training, exercises and games. The Girls on the Run program is a nationwide association sponsored by the YMCA. For the 5K run in May, hundreds of students with their adult running buddies from across the city ran the 3.1 miles to celebrate their hard work. Many Edmunds teachers came to support and run with the girls, including Nikki Russell, Pam Maxwell, Brandie Bell, Stephanie Erb, Nella Thomas, and Dwana Bradley. It was a fun event for all involved and great to see so much school and family support for the Girls on the Run students!
