Photo submitted Sense of achievement About 100 students from Garnet Mesa and Lincoln elementary schools are involved in the “Girls on the Run” program. In preparation for the season-ending run in Grand Junction this weekend, they ran a practice 5k at Delta High School last week. As they completed each of the 12 laps, they “earned” a letter on their arms which ultimately spelled out “I just ran a 5k!” Track team members from Delta Middle and Delta High schools joined the girls on the track or cheered them from the sidelines. Walmart donated a gift card for refreshing beverages served at the halfway mark. For more information about the program, the race, or how you can get involved, visit www.gotr westerncolorado.org.
