Wyoming First Lady, and avid runner, Carol Mead today was named the honorary race chair and grand marshal for the Girls on the Run
(GOTR-WY) 5k race in Lion’s Park, Cheyenne. Mrs. Mead was an integral part of bringing the program to Wyoming as the final state to implement a Girls on the Run program
which now has a council in all 50 states.
“Girls on the Run Cheyenne is honored to have Wyoming’s First Lady, Carol Mead, as part of our 5k celebration this season,” said Cindy Bradley, executive director of Girls on the
Run Wyoming. “She embodies the core values and lessons that are part of Girls on the Run. Our girls learn to be confident, courageous and to boldly pursue their dreams. Mrs.
Mead is an outstanding example of limitless potential for all our Girls on the Run.”
The Girls on the Run® program came to Wyoming in 2016 with the first chapter located in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Wyoming was the last state in the country to establish the program
and the board has a mission to establish chapters in other communities throughout the state in the coming years.
Runners can join Mead in her support of Girls on the Run Wyoming by participating in the 5k race. The race begins at 9:00 a.m. on November 18. Registration is $30 for adults and
$35 on race day. Children may register for $25.
