SARASOTA COUNTY, VENICE, May 17, 2017 – On Saturday, May 6, 26 girls from Garden Elementary School completed the spring season of Girls on the Run with their culminating 5K at Poynter Park in St. Petersburg.

Girls on the Run is an after-school activity which runs for 10 weeks at Garden Elementary. The goal of Girls on the Run is to promote active, joyful, healthy girls in grades three-five through a series of lessons that focus on current issues pre-teens face.

Garden art teacher and head coach Joanna Davis said, “It has been a joy to run, walk, and laugh with these girls this spring. They have learned so much and have come so far physically and mentally. I am so proud of them and their achievements."

Garden Elementary School is located at 700 Center Rd., Venice.
