New AWARE program empowers girls 8-11
JUNEAU - All are invited to attend an informational meeting Aug. 8 about a new prevention program for 8-11 year-olds. Girls on the Run of Juneau (GOTR) is an empowerment program educating girls in grades 3-8 on self-esteem and healthy self-image while training for a 5K race. The program offers an interactive 24-lesson curriculum starting in September at two school locations. Team Tiara, the charity "leg" of GOTR, uses the power of running to make a difference in the lives of girls. Athletes pursue individual goals to raise money for the local program.

The informational meeting will be held Aug. 8 from 5:30-6:30pm at AWARE, 1547 Glacier Hwy.
