Hornsby-Dunlap Elementary School was selected by Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) America to participate in this year’s Girls on the Run of Austin event on Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Dell Diamond baseball stadium to promote health and wellness.

Hornsby-Dunlap will be represented by 12 students and their families to participate on the Girls on the Run 5k running event. PHIT America is sponsoring the students.

Principal Rocha appeared on KXAN on Friday, Dec. 1, with Executive Director Alicia Henderson.

“Del Valle ISD and Hornsby-Dunlap ensures that health and wellness remains a top priority because it helps students’ success in the classroom,” Principal Rocha said during the KXAN interview.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd – 8th grade. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
