Nancy Woodward, Executive Director of Girls on the Run Greater Hartford, explains her young organization (active in Hartford for the past year and a half), and their participation in the Blue Back Mitten Run 5k in West Hartford. Girls on the Run is an after school program that helps girls learn confidence, care, connections, competence, and contributions to the community. Running has been integrated into the program, too, as the girls learn to run a 5k, which is what they’ll be doing at the Mitten Run.
