The Girls on the Run/Girls on Track Celebration 5K is the culmination of a 10-week after-school program that builds self-esteem and confidence, and promotes healthy lifestyles. About 1,450 girls and their 300 volunteer coaches will create a wave of pink and lime-green in their Girls on the Run T-shirts as they run and walk through the GVSU campus.

The public is invited to cheer for the girls along the route. Community members are also invited to participate in the 5K race to show support for the girls.

Call 616-494-1719 or visit for information about participation as a community runner and to register.
