Brave girls—and boys—are invited to President Lincoln’s Cottage for this program that teaches them about Bobbi Gibb’s history-making Boston Marathon run and allows them to participate in a socially distant fun run, too.
Program includes: Group reading of The Girl Who Ran: Bobbi Gibb, The First Woman to Run the Boston Marathon, by Frances Poletti & Kristina Yee and Illustrated by Susanna Chapman. Create a motivational poster to encourage yourself when self-doubt arises and participate in an individual “Fun Run” while remaining socially distanced
To ensure safe social distancing, admission includes a reservation for a table for each family/group to use during and after the program. Tables come in sizes for up to 4 people or up to 8 people. Pack a picnic to enjoy after the end of the program.
