Core recently partnered with Girls on the Run Northern Virginia on its annual spring 5K event. Held in both the Arlington and Woodbridge locations, the 5K is the culminating achievement for thousands of local girls participating in the Girls on the Run program and is considered a celebration of steps they have taken together towards more joyful, healthy, and confident lives. Core was thrilled to sponsor Mile Marker 2 at the Arlington race, held Sunday, May 15 and this group of young ladies rounded out the program for the year and we look forward to continuing to support this important local group inspiring and supporting young women in all of their fitness goals.
