Fifteen middle school girls from Riverbank K-8 School in West Sacramento ran their first 5k on Sunday, December 9 at WIlliam Land Park. Each girl partnered with a Sole Sister, an adult runner who helped the girls keep their pace and stay positive to finish the race.
The girls were joined by more than 200 runners. Without these dedicated runners, the girls wouldn’t have had the experience of a race to finish their season. The race we usually finish the season with had been canceled, so with the help of dedicated volunteers and Capital Road Race Management, we put on an invitational 5k race of our own.
This race wouldn’t have been possible without generous support from CRRM, Sole Sisters, volunteers and donors. Thank you everyone who contributed for making this race such a success for the FFG team!
