Yesterday, I made my way to Fort George Park for the first session of the Run for Fun Pavement Princess Program. The Prince George RCMP started this running group for girls between the ages of 10 and 15 to focus on fitness and reach out to young girls. As I arrived at the park I was shocked by the turnout. There was around 30 girls eager to start the fitness testing and first run! Once I gathered the girls in my group we separated from the rest to begin the testing of push-ups, sit-ups, squats, step-ups, and vertical jumps. It was awesome seeing young girls so enthusiastic about being active! Between each set, the group would rest, and I went around the circle getting to know each girl. I had so much fun on the first day, and I’m looking forward to volunteering every Tuesday throughout May and June. At the beginning of each session in the future, the girls will learn about different issues facing youth such as gangs, drugs, and cell phone/internet awareness. I also hope to talk to the group about my platform of compassion, and how each one of them can put compassion forth into our world. I am really excited to be a positive role model for these girls and I hope I can make a difference! I will post more about the program and some pictures as it continues!
