GO! St. Louis Team for Kids is the official charity team for GO! St. Louis. This exciting new team will help you train for a race at the 2012 GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness Weekend, while raising funds to help us in our mission to fight the raising rate of youth obesity.
We created this new team out of an increased interest in expanding our local youth fitness initiatives at a time of crisis for many young children, who continue to fight a lack of physical exercise and ultimately an obesity problem than can lead to a lifetime of health issues. We have expanded our youth programs over the years to reach at-risk children – more than 20,000 in 2011, but we need to do more, and we need your help.
By joining the team, not only will you raise awareness and funds for GO! St. Louis Team for Kids, you will receive a variety of exclusive event incentives:
- Complimentary entry into Marathon or Half Marathon
- GO! St. Louis official training program led by Big River Running Company
- Technical training shirt
- Special GO! St. Louis Team for Kids Race day shirt
- VIP Race Day Perks - access to VIP Tent for baggage check & post event refreshments
- Special apparel discounts
- A personalized online fundraising page
- Fundraising prizes to be announced
In return, team members will raise a minimum of $500.
