    • Miss Audrain Outstanding Teen Abbie Hebron

    • Abbie Hebron, Miss Audrain Outstanding Teen visited girls in third through fifth grades Monday at Eugene Field Elementary School to promote and explain her program Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a life-changing, experimental learning program for girls ages 8 to 13 years. The program combines training for a 3.1-mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the program are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The objective of Girls on the Run is to educate and empower girls at an early age in order to prevent the display of at-risk activities in the future. At-risk activities include substance/alcohol abuse, eating disorders, early onset of sexual activity, sedentary lifestyle, depression, suicide attempts and confrontations with the juvenile justice system. After her presentation, Miss Audrain Outstanding Teen signed autographs.
