Mentoring a child helps them to see unlimited possibilities for the future, learn something new and most importantly, realize that somebody cares about them.
A helpful bunch of UNK Gamma Phi Beta members, past and future GOTR girls and GOTR moms sacked groceries at the Kearney HyVee supermarket to promote program awareness and solicit donations for local GOTR girls. Kudos to regional coordinator Bold Becky Gathje for organizing this fun activity! Kearney is set to host 8 (count 'em -- 8!) local teams next spring.
Please help GOTR-Nebraska build strong girls in the Heartland with a donation during the national Giving Tuesday event Nov. 29.
GOTR-Nebraska serves 1,900 girls each year, and it takes an army of committed, "get 'er done" volunteers. Get involved and help girls put their best foot forward with our blend of friendship and 5K fun. There are many ways to volunteer (coaching, regional planning, fundraising and everything in between). Guess what? You DON'T have to be a runner to be a HUGE help to the organization. Check out the Volunteer page under "Get Involved" to learn more.
