A new program is starting in Winner and is known as Girls on the Run.
It is a non-profit program run through EMBE in Sioux Falls and is funded through the United Way.
Over a period of 10 weeks, girls in 3rd to 5th grade participate in an after school program. It is designed to allow each girl to recognize her inner strength.
Registration is now open. The program will start on Sept. 6 and the girls meet every Monday and Wednesday. They will conclude with a 5k run in Sioux Falls on Nov. 12.
Coaches are Lindsey Foster, Emily Tideman, Gail Buus, Monica Metzger, Kallie Farley and Dusti Littau. All have attended trainings and are nationally certified.
The local sponsors are Winner Regional Healthcare Center, Jorgensen Land and Cattle, Grossenburg Implement and Casey’s General Store.
