Girard College invites our families, alumni, friends and neighbors for an evening of fun and exercise that directly benefits our student activities and programming.

The evening will feature a 5K run, a 1 mile walk, and plenty of exciting activities. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus as we run ‘beyond the wall’ and into the community.
