"The Girls on the Run 5k is a family-friendly, community event that strives to share the tools and inspiration for healthy living and self-confidence from the Girls on the Run after-school programs, with all members of the Bay Area community."
"Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a non-profit after school program that uses running to teach young girls about the importance of self-respect, physical activity, nutrition, and community service. GOTR has a strong reputation in the Bay Area for increasing fitness and improving nutritional awareness in the families who need that information the most. GOTR believes it is critical to reach girls at an early age to better prevent at-risk behavior such as eating disorders, obesity, substance abuse, depression and adolescent pregnancies. Over 75% of girls in the program require financial assistance to participate."

Benefits: Why Sports Participation for Girls and Women?
This is not a BRC event. It is just a notice of a run some people are doing. Each person is solely responsible for oneself, and for following race etiquette, laws, park rules, and park safety guidelines. Thanks.
