Sky Girls on the Run
Saturday November 12th was the New Balance Girls on the Run - Chicago 5k event at Toyota Park in Chicago. The Chicago Sky supports the mission of Girls on the Run in encouraging young girls to run and be active and Sky staff have been attending the event with Sky Guy for the past few years to encourage the thousands of runners and act as running buddies for girls who participate in the race that have no-one to run with. Sky VP of Operations Michelle Henstock and Sky Creative Director Ashley Gerou were paired up with girls from R.C Hill Elementary in Romeoville and Johnson Elementary School in Warrenville and lined up at the start with their buddies Maja and Maeyla. Both girls did a great job finishing the race under 40 minís and had huge smiles on their faces as they crossed the finish line inside Toyota Park and saw themselves on the big screen.
