Thank you Juneau volunteers for making the Fall 2019 GOTR/BRITK 5K a success!

Twenty volunteers plus coaches came together to support Girls on the Run and Boys Run I toowú klatseen students through the big challenge of completing a 5K last Saturday at the Dimond Park field house. Volunteers supported our students through registration and boosted their spirits with face paint, “happy hair” and an opportunity to try Native Youth Olympics games. Runners enjoyed food and drink provided by Tlingit & Haida and Northern Tea House and then powered forward with two hours of music offered by the Intertribal Drumming Group. Boys Varsity basketball players from Juneau-Douglas High School cheered students on and motivated the next lap with human tunnels and “high-five” lines. The City and Borough of Juneau Human Rights Commission funded much of our event and inspired kids with pictures of young leaders and offered outreach to families around the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Gunalchéesh to everyone who came together to make this 5K a fun and successful event!

Girls on the Run in Juneau is sponsored by Rainforest Pediatric Care, Glacier Pediatrics and Valley Medical Care and is partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues.

Volunteering for the 5K is a great way to learn about these excellent programs. To volunteer, please contact Heidi Davis at 586-4902 or For more information, visit and
