A group that helps young girls in the Grand Valley deal with social issues held a fundraiser Friday night at the Two Rivers Winery.

Dozens of girls wore their favorite flip flops along with formal attire for the event. The Girls On the Run of the Grand Valley is an after–school group that focuses on empowering girls to make good choices.
The group also incorporates exercise into its program. The girls train for an annual 5–k run that is held every April.

The Girls On the Run of the Grand Valley are always looking for coaches to volunteer their time and advice. For more information on how to get involved in the group, you can go to www.girlsontherungv.com.
