Girls on the Run Complete 5K

Students in Doherty’s Girls on the Run Club prepared for 12 weeks to reach their goal—run a 5K. The girls did just that on Saturday, May 12, participating in the organization’s 5K run at Paul Brown Stadium. The girls were coached two times a week by Doherty teachers Julie Brackett, Julie Guminey, and Claire Laughlin. Brackett said Doherty has been running a Girls on the Run program for six years. “The program concentrates on health and wellness goals, as well as helps girls look at social issues of friendship in a positive way,” she said. “It is an empowering program for girls. We are so proud of this group!”
