For over 165 years Marygrove has been a place where children, youth and families in need have found hope and healing. Marygrove provides treatment and support to young people struggling with the often debilitating emotional and behavioral issues resulting from abuse, neglect and other traumatic experiences. Through its comprehensive continuum of residential and community based programs including therapeutic residential treatment and foster care, transitional and independent living and crisis care, Marygrove transforms over 1,300 lives each year.
You are invited to join Team Marygrove as we run so children don’t walk alone. The young people at Marygrove work towards their goals of independence or reunification with their families on a daily basis. They encounter many challenges along the way, but we are proud of how hard they work to achieve these goals. Marygrove is proud to be an official charity of the GO! St. Louis Marathon for the second consecutive year! Our goal is to have a team of 50 runners and walkers so the children at Marygrove can see how many friends they have within the community who also work hard to help give them brighter futures.
