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...
Hey Girls on the Run!
I am so excited to meet you all and be even a small part of your journey this fall!
Colleen Quigley, St. Louis native and Olympic steeplechase athlete, was named the honorary race chair for the Girls on the Run St. Louis 5k race on Saturday, November 18, starting at Soldiers' Memorial in downtown St. Louis.
Over the years, Girls on the Run has received hundreds of letters from girls, parents, school personnel and coaches regarding how the lessons taught at Girls on the Run have changed lives.
