After 10 weeks
of training, six students from Van Antwerp Middle School will
participate in the inaugural Girls on the Run Capital Region 5K
celebration, 9:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Corning
Preserve Boat Launch in Albany. The students are part of the
Heart and Sole program for middle school girls. The program’s
goal is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident
using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively
Running buddies supported the Van Antwerp students during their training process and participated in a practice 5K run with them on Nov. 2. During the practice 5K, parents, classmates, Van Antwerp staff, and students from Union College cheered them on along the course. Two Van Antwerp teachers, Mrs. Krauss and Mr. Lebel also completed the 5K.
