Gecko Girls Club also welcomes special female speakers, including women in the community considered to be positive role models.
It’s all about building a team, both while running and learning about the world and how to succeed as a woman.
“They are really excited, they are loving it,” Herr said.
Eventually, the Gecko Girls will take on a 5K race challenge. Moms will be invited along.
“It will be a great bonding experience for moms and girls,” Herr said.
