DeWald Chiropractic recently gave a donation of $1,025 to Shannon Butters, Girls on the Run executive director.

Girls on the Run is a national physical activity-based positive youth development program for third through eighth grade girls. Participants develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care, create positive connections with peers and adults and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.

Each session is led by trained volunteer coaches that guide and mentor the girls. The 10-week program concludes with all participants completing a celebratory 5K event, which gives them a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.

Girls on the Run has served more than 1.2 million girls since its inception in 1996.

Drs. Jenifer DeWald, Steven Tambascio and Shauna Deschenes, volunteered their services during the months of April, May and June, providing new patients with an initial visit for a donation to Girls on the Run.

“Our office really enjoys giving something back. We loved having this opportunity to give our time and talents to people in exchange for a donation that will be used to help young girls right here in our community,” DeWald said.

This month, DeWald Chiropractic will be teaming up with K’s for Cancer Foundation to help give support to individuals in need. For a donation, new patients will receive a complete health history, chiropractic examination and a report of the findings.
