Highlights from the Girls on the Run Program at St. Ambrose

The St. Ambrose Girls on the Run(GOTR) program had an excellent season!  The team was ecstatic to be picked by the GOTR program coordinators to have Coach Lisa Stone, the honorary race chair, and her SLU Women’s Basketball players join them for a practice session. The visit was featured in an article in the St. Louis Review.  It was a great experience for all of the girls!

On Saturday, May 7th, the team joined 8,000+ runners downtown to complete a 5K as the end to the program.  All of the girls and their running buddies did a great job completing the race and meeting their personal goals.  Middle school teacher. Kate Black, and fourth grader, Audrey S., were interviewed on Fox 2 Now. It was a fantastic day for all of the participants!

On Monday, May 9th, the girls gathered one last time for a celebration of their season.  They each received a certificate for completing the program along with a team photo and a copy of the St. Louis Review article featuring an article about the St. Ambrose Girls on the Run program.   The girls had fun watching a video slideshow and sharing a snack.  Everyone is already looking forward to the next season!
