On Sunday, June 17th, 2012 over 2,000 participants joined together for the 2012 Girls on the Run 5K Celebration at Downsview Park in Toronto to celebrate the success of the 2012 Girls on the Run/Girls on Track participants from schools around the GTA. It was an incredibly inspiring day!
IRONDame Mary Anne Innes’ Girls on the Run (GOTR) Team from Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School in Oakville raced the 5K event and had a fantastic day! With their families there to support them and even in some cases run along side them, Mother Teresa team members beamed with a sense of accomplishment as they crossed the finish line.
Everyone involved in Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School’s GOTR Program: teachers, students and parents alike, want to do the GOTR program again next year. The IRONDames look forward to hearing more about the team’s successes and couldn’t be prouder of Mary Anne for her involvement with the program. Go Mother Teresa GOTR Team Go!
