Girls on the Run RI Virtual 5K Presented by NTT DATA

Posted by GOTRRI

The Girls on the Run Rhode Island Spring 5K is going virtual! Our first ever Virtual 5K aims to celebrate each and every girl in our program and the unstoppable strength, resiliency and confidence they have to navigate even the toughest of situations.

We encourage you to run, walk, bike, dance, or jump your way through your 5K in your home, in your neighborhood, or in an outdoor space that you can safely access and practice social distancing.

The event is open to everyone so invite your friends or family to join you for this fun, virtual celebration! Participants have until May 24 to complete their 5K and will receive a cotton race shirt, digital race bib, and digital finisher certificate.

All proceeds will directly benefit GOTRRI and ensure our program is accessible to all girls.
