Cranston Bay View Girls are On the Run

Two girls from Cranston are taking part in the upcoming 5K Dec. 1 at Roger Williams Park in Providence as part of the Girls on the Run youth development program at Bay View Academy.

Eighteen Bay View Academy students in grades three through five are preparing for a 5K Run/Walk that takes place on December 1st at Roger Williams Park.  The 5K is a part of the girls’ commitment to the Bay View Academy chapter of Girls on the Run, a positive youth development program that inspires girls to stay true to themselves and live free from societal stereotypes. The curriculum innovatively weaves training for a 5K with lessons that empower girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices and embrace their gifts.

Loving Lily, Magnificent Maggie, Kickin' it Katie, and Radiant Roslyn—just some of the names that the Bay View Girls on the Run group members gave themselves in September at the start of their 10-week program. Since then the girls have been meeting every Tuesday and Thursday to learn about important topics including positive attitudes, peer pressure, recognizing and preventing bullying, advocating awareness, nutrition, and body image, all while preparing for the 5K. 

Bay View Upper School students will attend the Girls on the Run 5k as well, to serve as “running buddies” and cheer on their Lower schoolmates.
