Our Community Health Educator, Karianne Lesperance teamed up with Mrs. Ashley Karkkainen at Blesch Intermediate School to coordinate the “Heart and SOLE Sisters” program in conjuction with the Marinette-Menominee YMCA again this spring! We had so much fun doing the program with 17 middle school girl participants.  This program is one of our favorites and we love the community support we received to be able to make it FREE for the girls! Not only was the program free, but they were able to be provided with proper running essentials and gear that many girls would not be able to have if it wasn’t for our wonderful community.  For a $100 sponsorship you provide a girl participant an adequate pair of running shoes, a sports bra, headband, water bottle, t-shirt, shorts and a race entry!  We are so thankful to see the successes that the program has already brought and we look forward to future sessions!

We also want to thank Mrs. Lesley Noha, Mrs. Delight Murphy, Mrs. Erica Fayta, Mrs. Linda Nye and Ms. Michaela Kaiser for all of their help with the program! If it wasn’t for the volunteers we would never be able to accept so many participants in the program. Please check out our gallery for more pictures!
