As some of you may know, I am currently in graduate school at Washington University in St. Louis pursuing my Masters in Social Work and Public Health. This summer I was in Boston doing my graduate school practicum at Massachusetts General Hospital while working remotely for Girls on the Run St. Louis. To say I missed being in the Girls on the Run office with my fantastic coworkers would be a complete understatement. When I discovered that there is a Girls on the Run Greater Boston, I had to meet and hear more about the council. All Girls on the Run are friends in my book!

I had the pleasure of visiting the Girls on the Run Greater Boston office in the heart of the city of Boston and got to meet the fabulous Council Director Bethany McDonald and Program Coordinator Kristen Bonito. Bethany was previously involved with Girls on the Run in Cincinnati, Ohio as a coach, race committee member, and SoleMate. Kristen learned about Girls on the Run while she worked and lived in DC and wanted to get involved in any way she could. Bethany and Kristen are both driven and dedicated to helping GOTR Greater Boston grow and reach more and more girls in the area. Girls on the Run Greater Boston has 23 sites and continues to grow each season!


It was so wonderful discussing Girls on the Run with Bethany and Kristen and hearing more about their council. It is comforting to know that even if I travel over 1,000 miles away from St. Louis, I can always find Girls on the Run and through the organization meet like-minded women wanting to equip girls to know and activate their limitless potential. Super sparkles to Bethany and Kristen and Girls on the Run Greater Boston for inspiring girls in their area to be joyful, healthy, and confident!
