Happy Friday! Below are 5 ways you can support Girls on the Run St. Louis at our 5k!

1. Run or walk the 5kOur 5k is a fun and unique experience! The race is all about the girls but we are also proud to put on one of the largest races in St. Louis. Whether you're looking for a fun environment or a high quality timed event, we have it all! The 5k supports our efforts to make the program accessible to girls!

2. Volunteer at the 5k! It takes a village to make such a large event run smoothly! Check out our '5 Reasons to Volunteer' for more inspiration or click here to sign up!

3. Come downtown and cheer! One of the things that makes our 5k so fun is the cheer stations and spectators along the course encouraging the girls to do their best! Make some encouraging posters and pick a spot!

4. Make a donation in honor of a Girl on the Run in your life! Do you know someone who embodies the Girls on the Run Core Values? Honor the strong women in your life by helping make scholarships available to all girls. More than 70% of our participants receive some amount of financial assistance. We could not do this without your support!


5. Spread the word! Let your friends and family know why you support Girls on the Run and how they can get involved!
