Girls on the Run!

Saturday, April 12, was a beautiful day for the Girls on the Run 5K held on campus.

I was there to see hundreds of runners and also hundreds of EIU students, faculty, and staff who volunteer for the Girls on the Run program, which focuses on fitness and positive self image for girls.

The east central Illinois chapter of the program has grown dramatically since its inception, and I am proud of the role our students, faculty, and staff have played in supporting it. It's another way Eastern supports our community.
