It was a pleasure to interview Chelsey Bowermaster from the YMCA. Chelsey facilitates an awesome program for 3rd – 5th grade girls that uses running (training for and running a 5K) as a tool for empowering young ladies to become women to be leaders and live healthy lifestyles.
A group of 50 girls are training for the Red Kettle Run 5K on November 3rd. If you would like to volunteer as a running buddy, or to get involved in GIrls on the Run of Polk County, contact Chelsey at chelsey.Bowermaster@dmymca.org.

Another good living effort from the YMCA!
