KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- This Thursday is the big Girls on the Run event in Kalamazoo. It's a 5K run for girls between the third and fifth grade, says organizer Sandy Barry Loken. She tells us it was all started 1996 as a way to help young girls improve their self esteem.

Every school district in Kalamazoo County participates in Girls on the Run, and 22 hundred runners are going to take part this Thursday. The event will start at six-30 PM Thursday at Western Michigan University's Waldo Stadium.
