Face the Race was created with the objective of increasing self-esteem in teenage girls ages thirteen to fourteen, a crucial time in a young girl’s life. These girls need confidence and the ability to set goals and achieve them. Face the Race is an after-school program held at Abell, Goddard, Alamo & San Jacinto Junior Highs and it includes physical fitness training and courses on women’s health. The girls are taught goal setting skills and are then given the opportunity to reach our program goal of running the 5K race in November. Every girl that finishes the program walks away with pride and high self-esteem because they know they can set and reach goals. You can register below or at JLM Headquarters (902 West Dengar, Midland, TX, 79705) or at Race Sign-in on November 5, 2016 at Scharbauer Sports Complex.
