Heart of MO GOTR 10-Year Celebration: Empowering Girls Past, Present, and Future

Saturday, August 28, 2021, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join us at Leech Pavilion in Cosmo Bethel Park as we celebrate the past, present, and future of our council and the girls, coaches, and others who make our programs shine! FREE and open to the public!

In 2010, ten mid-Missouri women came together to form what is now the Heart of Missouri Girls on the Run Council. Most of these women had never met one another prior to the first meeting, but they all shared a common goal - to empower young girls. After learning about Girls on the Run each reached out to the organization’s headquarters and it was through Girls on the Run International that they were connected and began the hard work of establishing a new council. Less than a year later, they hosted their first Girls on the Run teams at Fairview and New Haven Elementary schools in Columbia, MO. That first season, 24 girls were served. Since then, the program has grown to serve more than 5,000 girls across mid-Missouri in schools in Boone, Callaway, Cole, Cooper, Macon, and Ralls counties.
