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.
Are you a young professional looking for ways to get more involved in Girls on the Run in 2020? We have two opportunities for you! Both the Young Friends Group and Young Professionals Board of Girls on the Run St. Louis are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals who believe in the mission and core values of Girls on the Run, and want to share its magic with those in their personal and professional communities.
Here are a few reasons that these young professional groups may just be the perfect fit for you!
Virginia Pearson is the mother of a participant at Mason Ridge Elementary. This was her first season participating in GOTR as a coach/site liaison and she did an AMAZING job. She truly embraced each of the GOTR Core Values and encouraged every girl on her team to recognize their own strength.
