Clarke Elementary is super excited to introduce a program called Girls on the Run! All girls from grades 3rd-6th are invited to join this new program. It runs 10-weeks from March 19th to May 24th. There is a culminating 5K event in Des Moines where all girls will walk/jog/run the 5K together!
Practices will be held after school twice per week for the 10 weeks leading up to the final event. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running! Girls on the Run is actually a nation-wide program that has proven successful in many school districts. The vision everything is based on is a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams!
