"It wasn't as hard as I thought," was the common sentiment of the excited You Go Girls as they crossed the finish line at a local 5k this past weekend.
You Go Girls, the after school club for girls in grades 4-6, along with their sister team from Germantown Friends School, joined together with friends and parents and thousands of others at Alex's Lemon Run, which raises money to fight childhood cancer. Each girl earned a medal and enjoyed free post race snacks and swag on a beautiful day in Fairmount Park. For many of our girls, it was their first footrace and the farthest they had ever run. Coach Meg Waldron was proud!
