About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run St. Louis

Project Created on: 07/01/2018

Project Type: SoleMates

Girls on the Run is a program that I fully support and participate in. The program is incredibly inspiring for young girls- especially in the community I serve. The Girls on the Run (GOTR) mission is to empower girls for a lifetime of healthy living. It teaches girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident, while integrating running. I have been involved with GOTR for three years now, as a running partner at my school, North Side Community School. This year I stepped up my status to “Coach”. Our team is made up of 17 girls from 4th and 5th grade who come and give their all at practice after a full day of school. They are bright, charismatic, and goal-oriented. The ultimate goal of our GOTR season is to participate in the 5k in November. GOTR is an important program for all girls, but especially within the community I serve. As a coach and volunteer, I am automatically registered to run. However, our girls have to pay a fee to participate. For some of the girls and their families, paying this fee is not possible. For this 2018 Fall season I am trying to obtain “5k Superstar” status. This means that I am running AND fundraising for the GOTR scholarship fund. My goal is $300. For every $150 dollars raised, 1 girl is able to participate, regardless of their financial need. That means my goal will support 2 girls! Please join me in this endeavor and please help support my girls. Any amount is great! I appreciate you and thank you!!
