Girls on the Run of Greater Milwaukee holds its first outdoor 5k Turkey Trot at 11 a.m. Nov. 18, at Greenfield Park, 2028 S. 124 St., West Allis.

Scholarships provide support for girls to participate in GOTR’s youth development program, which “combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls.”

“The race celebrates the culmination of the girls in the program preparing physically and emotionally to complete a 5k,” said race director Sheila Wordell. “GOTR allows participants to gain confidence through accomplishments while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.”

The race begins at 11 a.m. at Greenfield Park and a Kids Fun Run, open to all kids, will start at noon.
