GOTR 2016 Season
This year Lovejoy embarked on their inaugural season of Girls on The Run. Girls on the Run is a running and life skills program for girls in 3rd-5th grade. The Lovejoy Team was made up of 11 girls with 9 completing the 5K (3.2 miles) on November 12th, 2016 at Raccoon River Park. Over 450 girls from across the metro ran in the race. During the season the girls also participated in a number of skill building activities and a service project. This year’s coaches were Miss Sheridan and Miss Gambrel. We also had many Lovejoy staff who supported the program by being running buddies. Thank you to our girls, their families, our staff and the Walnut Creek YMCA for their support! We want to give a special thank you to our Sister School, Walnut Hills Elementary, for supporting us this season and helping us to activate our Star Power! Below are photos of the epic GOTR season!
