From Local Sources

Audra Dilger has joined Girls on the Run - Serving Dubois County Inc.’s board of directors.

Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive, youth development program that inspires third- through fifth-grade girls to recognize their limitless potential and boldly pursue their dreams.

Dilger is the inside sales manager at Jasper Engines and Transmissions. She first heard about Girls on the Run from a business customer in Washington, D.C., and was excited to be able to have her daughters participate when the organization began in Dubois County. Dilger resides in Ferdinand with her husband, Mark, and their daughters, Payton, Ashlyn and Hattie. 

The 10-week Girls on the Run program, which is led by volunteer coaches, focuses on helping girls develop key life skills, such as cultivating confidence, responding to oneself and others with care and creating positive connections. The teams also learn the value of giving back to their community through a service project. Each season culminates with a 5k event that celebrates girls’ growth during the season.

Girls on the Run has 220 councils in 50 states and the District of Columbia and has served over 1 million girls since 1996. Girls on the Run – Serving Dubois County is beginning its fourth season of inspiring girls in the Dubois County area.
