Girls on the Run Blog
This fall, girls and coaches across our territory are lacing up their shoes, logging in to zoom, and connecting with their peers! Some teams are practicing in a virtual setting, and some teams are practicing in-person in safe, socially-distant ways. Regardless of HOW girls and coaches are connecting, they are learning, growing, and having fun together!

We at Girls on the Run St. Louis are grieving and are outraged alongside our community. The murder of George Floyd and the collective cries across our country and in our own community have evermore made apparent our need to follow the Girls on the Run Core Value to "recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making." At Girls on the Run St. Louis we know that this must be at the forefront of everything we do for our Girls on the Run. Every Black person has the right to live and thrive in community without fear of violence or racism.
