Event Description:

Join NOW 96.3 at St. Joseph's Academy for the Girls on the Run Practice 5K on May 4th! 

 

The largest timed 5k race in Missouri, the biannual Girls on the Run St. Louis (GOTR-STL) 5k benefits the Girls on the Run scholarship fund. This year, GOTR-STL expects to provide participating girls full or partial scholarships totaling nearly $390,000.

GOTR-STL empowers girls for a lifetime of healthy living through an innovative curriculum that combines training for a 5K running event with lessons that inspire girls in 3rd through 8th grade to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions.  At the conclusion of each season, girls and their running buddies complete a 5k, giving participants a tangible sense of achievement and a framework for setting, and achieving, life goals.  The result – making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.

GOTR-STL was founded in 2002 and is now the second largest council in the country. Today, GOTR-STL is in more than 350 schools across 23 counties in eastern Missouri and western Illinois.
