Girls on the Run has offered young women in the Chippewa Valley empowerment through physical activity and youth development groups for more than 12 years now.

Known for their celebratory 5K, Girls on the Run encourages pre-teen girls (ingrades three through eight) to find confidence in accomplishment. But if running a 5K isn’t your forte, you can still support this life-changing nonprofit by taking on a new challenge: digging up your fashionable reflective gear!

Join Girls on the Run for their glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt on Friday, Sept. 28, and adventure through Altoona’s River Prairie Park for intriguing challenges and clues. Step up your scavenging skills as your team competes for first- and second-place prices, or go all out with your glow gear and fight for the prize of “the most GLOWING team.”

Teams should consist of three to five members. All ages are welcome to this family-friendly event, but team captains must be 18 or older. Tickets are on sale now via raceplanner.com. Arrive at 6pm for rules and check-in.
