DAYTON, Ohio (WBDT) - The Girls on the Run made their way through Dayton Saturday morning.
The girls trained for weeks leading up to the big event. Each runner had a "buddy" to help encourage them.
They ran their hearts out and had the chance to play fun games. They even had the chance to design their very own princess crowns.
Girls on the Run is a character development program for girls in third through eighth grade. It help them with self-esteem through exercise and running.
Our own CW Star, Brandy Zapata, was on hand to start the race! Runners started and finished at Dayton's Welcome Stadium.
Dayton's CW is a proud sponsor of the event.
