LAS VEGAS, NV. (Nov. 28, 2017) – Republican Gubernatorial candidate, Jared Fisher and his wife Heather, will be volunteering as “running buddies” for the elementary-aged girls in the national organization Girls on the Run 5K to be held at Sunset Park, Saturday, December 2 from 9 am-noon.
The national not-for-profit is an after-school program that teaches female students in elementary and middle schools how to be creative problem solvers, independent thinkers and healthy decision makers. At the end of the 10-week program, the students partake in a confidence-boosting 5K run.
Girls on the Run’s mission, according to their website, is “to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.” As of 2015, Girls on the Run has hosted over 350 end-of-season running events nationwide.
“Heather and I are honored to be running buddy volunteers for two young ladies who have completed an educational, inspiring, and healthy Girls on the Run program,” said Jared Fisher. “I firmly believe that good health results in healthy decisions making, and if young girls can learn and adopt good decision-making tools, it is a great personal asset that will serve them for their entire life”.
The Fisher campaign is anchored in a “Healthy Nevada” platform. Calling for a government that strives for a Healthy Economy, Healthy Education, and Healthy Energy Policy.
