I first heard about Girls on the Run during the spring of 2012, which is when I ran the 5k with my sister, Beth and daughter, Maura, who was in a carriage at the time.  The commitment and dedication of the Girls on the Run staff, to the trainers, teachers, the girls families, to the look of happiness in all the girls faces when they crossed the finish line was AMAZING. It was then I wanted to do more.  So I reached out to Vikki Szabo and asked to volunteer. I completed the application and that fall  began volunteering. Continuing to  volunteer and now running the 5k with my husband, children and sister during the spring, and hearing all the families cheer these girls on is truly INSPIRING.  As a volunteer, a mother and a community member, we all have our own journey in life.  Not knowing each girl, or their story or challenges, I am able to see how committed each one of them is to fill  this journey in their life and to build their own self esteem and surround others with positive words of encouragement, as well as themselves and truly believing in themselves.
