The Charlotte Roller Girls will show up to support their community partner, Girls on the Run at their annual 5k on May 12th. The 5k is the culminating event of the 12-week program that strives to teach young women self-esteem through exercise. The ladies will be helping with day of activities including preparation and cheering the young women on. The event is meant for the girls to demonstrate what they’ve learned throughout the duration of the program. The friends and families of
the participants are encouraged to join in to cheer on and run with their daughters.
The Charlotte Roller Girls chose Girls on the Run for their 2012 Community Partner. The two
organizations have similar goals of empowering women. Their likeminded positive attitudes toward
fitness make them a perfect pair. The Charlotte Roller Girls will continue to work with Girls of the Run
for the remainder of the year.
