Hi to all of the powerful Girl on the Run teams!

Words can’t begin to express how honored I am to be part of Girls on the Run! What an amazing group of young women you are.
From the age of 5, running basically became an everyday activity as my love for basketball began to grow and develop. Through the years, running has been a way
for me to help craft my skill and work on my jump shot. It helped keep me competitive and build my confidence.
I’m beyond proud of all of you, as you all have committed to something as special as Girls on the Run. I promise you will never regret this time spent and all of your hard
work. Building relationships with other dedicated runners is a forever bond and unforgettable memories.
There will be a moment when you will think to yourself can I do this? The answer is without question, YES! You are built for greatness and whatever you set your mind
to is possible, because you are simply you! Plus, you will have me, a hundred other sparklers, coaches, friends, and parents cheering you on!
“It always seems impossible, until it’s done” then you realize you will only get better with continued dedication, discipline, and heart.

Can’t wait to see all of your smiling faces at the finish line!

Always Looking Forward,
Khalia M. Collier
Owner and General Manager, St. Louis Surge Basketball
