Panther Run Elementary School’s Girls on the Run Club participated in the Women for Women 5K on Tuesday, May 13. The girls are in grades three through five, and they trained for about 12 weeks for the race. Along with running, the girls learned life skills during their meeting times. They learned problem-solving strategies, how to deal with peer pressure, how to handle bullies and how to choose friends. Teachers Amy Evans, Ivonne Sanchez, Anna Karabensh and coach Caroline Archambault also participated in the 5K, as did Principal Edilia De La Vega and Assistant Principal Risa Suarez. Girls on the Run is a national organization. To learn more, visit www.girlsontherunpbc.org.
