This year, St. John Vianney participated in the Girls on the Run program for the first time, with a team of 16 girls in third through fifth grades.

The goal of Girls on the Run is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program inspired the St. John Vianney girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrated running.

During the 10 weeks, from March through mid-May, the girls also trained for the Girls on the Run 5K run/walk while learning life skills such as healthy decision-making and teamwork.
