This morning CWiB partnered with Girls Inc. to complete the Fit For All 5K in Riverside Park. Forty-four participants, including CWiB members and high school girls from the Girls Inc. program completed the race on a sunny and crisp fall day. Following the race, everyone re-grouped for post-race bagels and coffee, as well as an ice breaker activity. The group spent the rest of the morning enjoying the beautiful fall weather in the park, and left the race having exercised and learned about each other’s most embarrassing Halloween costumes!
The Fit For All 5K was hosted by the West Side YMCA, and aimed to support childhood obesity and diabetes prevention programs. Girls Inc. is an organization that provides programming and resources to help girls set and accomplish goals, overcome challenges, pursue higher education opportunities, and enter fields in which women are underrepresented, such as STEM. In addition to running together in events like the Fit for All 5K, CWiB and Girls Inc. partner up throughout the year at various events that allow CWiB members to have a positive impact on the broader community beyond CBS.
