St. Louis native Kim Hudson, multimedia journalist with FOX2/News 11, was named the honorary race chair for the Girls on the Run St. Louis 5k race on Saturday, May 12 starting at Soldiers’ Memorial in downtown St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS (March 8, 2018) – Veteran teacher Jennifer Carcagno, and enthusiastic volunteer Brad Eastman, will be recognized with Energy Awards, the highest honor given by Girls on the Run St. Louis. A third Energy Award will be presented to Emerson. The awards will be presented at the 5th annual Power of One Gala on April 12 at Lumen, 2201 Locust Street in St. Louis.
Did you know that Girls on the Run St. Louis is part of the Youth Opportunities Program (YOP), administered by the Missouri Department of Economic Development? The program provides tax credits to individuals or organizations administering positive youth development projects, like Girls on the Run.
When I first learned about Girls on the Run during my undergraduate years, I thought it was just a running program that I would never really be a part of -- after all running really isn’t my strength. Little did I know that just a few years later GOTR-STL would be a huge part of my life and education.
The GOTR-STL 5k is a little over a week away and we are getting so excited!! We are also super excited to have St. Louis native and Olympian, Colleen Quigley, as our honorary race chair this season! You may have heard how she’s a pretty big deal when it comes to the steeplechase...
