SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Converse College Cross Country team participated in the annual Girls on the Run 5k Event hosted by the Spartanburg County Council on Saturday, November 18. This marks the second year the Valkyries has helped in the event.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
Converse will become a host site for Girl on the Run for its spring training with coaches Brandon Morton and Cord Sgaglio named as site coaches.
