Being a track athlete and active runner myself, I was happy when my daughter came to my wife and I and expressed interest in wanting to be a part of Girls on the Run. The mission of Girls on the Run is to empower girls for a lifetime of healthy living. Our program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grades inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. I will be running with my daughter in the 5k on Saturday, May 9 in downtown St Louis. Your donation can help to make sure any girls that want to run can do so without having to worry about cost. Thank you for your support!
