About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Heart of Kansas
Project Created on: 02/23/2017
Project Type: Girl Power
We are Team Yogi Bears (Mandy Ermey, RaeAnn Wirths, Lauren Coston, and Casey Peterson)! We love our yoga and we love helping others in need, and of course we love a good adventure. These are just a few reasons why we formed this team. We are excited to support a great organization to empower youth in our community.
Saturday, February 25th, we are participating in Brews, Clues, and Running Shoes to help raise money and awareness for Girls on the Run. Brews, Clues and Running Shoes is a twist on the Amazing Race! It’s part trivia and part challenges. Teams of 4 must solve clues to find checkpoints throughout downtown Wichita. To move on you must perform challenges to earn stamps. Teams will cover about 4 miles and finish in about 2 hours. The goal is to be the first team to cross the finish line after successfully completing checkpoint challenges.
For every $1 our team raises, we will receive an extra 5 points. For every $120 our team raises, we will receive an extra 20 points. $120 would provide funds for one girl to participate in the program!

Girls on the Run "What We Do - At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k event."
