One of NCCF’s liveliest grant recipients, Girls on the Run of Central Virginia hosted two 5K races this fall. NCCF advisory committee members Donna McCurdy (co-chair) and Sue Klett were on hand to cheer on Nelson County’s teams from Tye River Elementary and Rockfish Elementary as they raced at Sweet Briar College in Amherst on Nov. 17. NCCF also supported other GOTR teams in a race on Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. at St. Anne’s-Belfield Learning Village in Charlottesville. As GOTR Council Director Mary Hansen noted, the program is all about bolstering young girls’ self-esteem as they mature. “Running is just one of our tools and it really works,” said Hansen.
