Over 1,000 people gathered Saturday in South Bend's Potawatomi Park for the annual Girls on the Run Michiana 5K event.

The race began at 9:00 a.m.

The race had teams from 29 different schools in Elkhart County and Saint Joseph County.

“I look forward to this event every year,” says Amy Cooper-Collier, Executive Director of the Council. “I cannot say ‘Thank you' enough to our sponsors, partners, coaches, volunteers, and dedicated staff. But it is the girls who inspire us all. They are the heroes here.”
