Girls on the Run AtlantaThis past week Girls on the Run was featured in the Gwinnett Daily Post. The article focuses on the girls of Rebecca Minor Middle School and the gifts given them by one of our wonderful sponsors, New Balance.

Minor Elementary started its club this year after kindergarten teacher Shawna Voight received a grant from Girls on the Run of Atlanta. Teachers Heather Alvira and Laurie Pitcock co-sponsor the club.
