Girls, Inc. “Run for the Girls” 5k

This event occurred on
Nathan Benderson Park

Run for the Girls – Girls Inc 5K is the culmination and celebration of our Girls on the Run after school program at sites across Sarasota County. All proceeds benefit Girls Inc. sports and fitness programs.

Anyone who has been to one of our 5K events knows that it is unlike any other running event.  It is a celebration of and for the girls who are completing a ten week season of Girls on the Run programming. By the day of the 5K, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race!  Positive energy abounds as the girls dance to warm-up music, get their hair “happied,” take team photos, warm up and gather with their teammates to hold hands as they head to the starting line.  Our 5K is an event that will bring a smile to your face!  You will be so glad you joined us!
