‘Boys Run’ hopes to emulate success of ‘Girls’

Elena Gustafson, with Sitkans Against Family Violence, talks about a new program for boys in grades through 3-5 called Boys Run. It’s based on the successful national self-esteem and empowerment program for girls called Girls on the Run. Boys Run, however, will be built on traditional Southeast values. Training for coaches is happening at the end of this month. Contact Gustafson at 747-3370.
