RUN IN THE SUN — Girls on the Run of Greater Alaska Ketchikan runners begin their end-of-the-season fun run at Ward Lake on Saturday. Girls on the Run is a 12-week program for third through sixth grade girls that encourages living healthy physically and mentally. The program is shown to decrease girls' "acceptance of traditional gender stereotypes, improve communication skills, improve self-esteem, self-respect, and body image, and promote engagement in healthy and safe relationships," according to an email from Women in Safe Homes prevention outreach advocate Arika Paquette. Ketchikan had 30 participants and Prince of Wales Island had 16.
