Abigail is a daughter, a 5th grader, a friend, a teammate…and a Girls on the Run alumna! GOTR has been a positive influence in her life. She has participated for the past two years at her school in Belleville, IL. GOTR has helped to foster her love of running and connected her to teammates who’ve become friends and supported her through challenging times. Abigail shares what she learned at GOTR, her interests in and out of school, and her memorable GOTR 5k moment.
