Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced today that it is partnering with Girls on the Run of Central NJ, a non-profit organization focused on creating a healthy lifestyle for girls in the third through eighth grade. As part of the relationship, Sky Blue FC will welcome Girls on the Run of Central NJ to Yurcak Field on Friday, May 13th, when the team plays host to the Boston Breakers.

“As a professional women’s soccer team, we certainly want to see young girls adapt to a healthy lifestyle at an early age,” said Tony Novo, Sky Blue FC President & General Manager. “Through organizations like Girls on the Run of Central NJ, a healthy culture becomes engrained in young girls, and that enables them to get the most out of all components of their lives. We look forward to sharing an evening of world class women’s soccer with them on May 13th.”

Girls on the Run of Central NJ has a mission of inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident while using a fun, experience-based curriculum to creatively integrate running. The Girls on the Run 5K race series offers 5K events throughout the country, with the Central NJ chapter hosting three 5K races each year. Its fall race held in Somerville consistently draws over 1400 participants, while their two spring races (Fair Haven, Somerville) see more than 2000 combined runners partake in the event.

"Girls on the Run of Central NJ is excited to be partnering with Sky Blue FC,” said Donna York, who runs the Central NJ chapter. “The women on the team embody the vision of Girls on the Run of Central NJ, which is to envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We welcome the opportunity to have the players come out and talk to the girls about what their dreams were as young girls and their path to achieving them.”
