CWiB Crosses Finish Line with Girls Inc. at Fit for All 5K

Group photo from raceThis 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!
