Join the fight to have equality for girls running in high school by sending a letter to OFSAA.  See attached letter for details.  In Ontario and most of Canada, girls in high school run shorter distances than boys.  There is no reason to this and the Ontario Federation of Secondary Schools Athletic Association has refused to remedy this situation.

See you on the roads…..
