$10,000 is now in the bank for the United Way's Girls on the Run Program thanks to United Federal Credit Union. With the donation, the credit union will be the presenting sponsor of this year's program. It starts the week of March 4, and culminates with the 5K run at the Berrien County Youth Fairgrounds on Thursday, May 23. Girls on the Run is in its fifth year, helping girls between 3rd and 8th grades in Berrien County learn about making healthy choices, think independently and improve their problem-solving skills. About 800 girls are expected to take part this year. Topics range from body image to negative media influence, bullying and gossip.
