St. Patrick students complete a 5K

A 5K run May 10 in Lincoln capped a spring of exercise and study for 21 girls at St. Patrick School in Elkhorn.

Girls in grades 3-5 took part in the twice-weekly sessions, offered as part of the national Girls on the Run! Program, which promotes self respect and a healthful lifestyle.

The program will be repeated in the fall, and participants are planning to participate in another 5K run in November.
