Girls on the Run is a national organization focused on developing self-respect and healthy lifestyles for pre-teen girls through running and learning. The western Massachusetts chapter of Girls on the Run typically hold a 5K event each year.

This year, because of COVID-19, the annual run went virtual. Connecting Point’s Ross Lippman spoke with one family planning on running the race in Hatfield to see how the Girls on the Run is making a difference, even from home.
