Girls on the Run Blog
The world has changed so much since we embarked on the Spring 2020 Girls on the Run season. We steadfastly remain focused on the social, emotional and physical health of our girls and our community. And although we can’t be together physically right now, we are so excited about the positive impact that GOTR at Home is having on our GOTR community.
Dear Girls on the Run St. Louis Community Member,
On behalf of all of us at Girls on the Run St. Louis, my gratitude for being part of our mission and hope that you and your family are healthy and safe as we navigate the challenges and uncertainties of COVID-19.
The health and safety of our Girls on the Run and volunteers are our foremost priority at Girls on the Run St. Louis (GOTR-STL). We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, in our region and the United States. We know the volume of information you are receiving is high and rapidly changing. While this can feel overwhelming, our intention is to be supportive of our GOTR-STL families, volunteers and community and to feel as connected as possible in the coming days and weeks.
More than 300 volunteers are needed each season at our 5k event to support our girls on the run as they complete a 5k and their season. Here are five things that make volunteering at the 5k so amazing!
In 2019, our 5k Superstar program raised enough funds to fully support 20 girls for a season! That is 20 girls that were able to experience the transformational Girls on the Run program thanks to the help of those that believe in its mission and impact.
