Hoop Cheerleaders needed for Girls on the Run DC Race

Girls on the Run (GOTR)
The objective of Girls on the Run® is to educate and empower girls at an early age in order to prevent their participation in at-risk activities. At-risk activities include substance/alcohol use, eating disorders, early onset of sexual activity, sedentary lifestyle, depression, suicide attempts and confrontations with the juvenile justice system.
Trish Peva, Lululemon Ambassador, Runner and Mom of two wonderful girls, has invited Hoop Dance DC to converge as Hoop Cheerleaders for the Sunday, May 16, GOTR 5K in DC at American University. She would love for us to bring our smiles and hoops and cheer the girls on as they fulfill their practice and goal setting - running a 5k. Date - Sunday, May 16, 2010 Meet time - 8am Race time - 9am Stay as long as you can Please bring hoops for yourself and to share and water Here are the deets. Extracted from
American University(track and sports field), will be more
Metro-accessible. AU is providing us with free shuttle service to and from AU and the Tenleytown station. Finally, we felt that by holding the 5K Event at a university, and utilizing its track and sports field space along the course, would provide an inspiring venue for our girls with built-in mentors: the students and cross country/track team!
Please contact me if you can attend: Jocelyn * [masked]

    What a lovely morning for hooping outdoors - temps in the low 60s, only a slight breeze, and a couple hundred appreciative runners. The runners (elementary to middle school-aged girls and their buddy adults) ran a two-loop, 5 kilometer course around the lovely American University Campus.

    During both pre- and post-race festivities, I was approached by many children, mainly girls, who wanted to hoop. It was so much fun helping them hoop (although hooping came naturally to many of them) and then challenging them to move around, dance, and do all-around goofy moves in the hoop. I had a blast.

    But the best part was cheering them on while they ran the course. I was situated at Reeves Field along the track and cheered as the runners entered and departed the field, and, since it was a 2-loop course, got a chance to cheer everyone four times. A few runners came up to me afterwards to thank me for the happy boost. Well, I also got a happy boost from all of them.
