CHARLESTON, IL – Friday, February 10th Girls On The Run East Central Illinois hosted a LuLaRoe open house fundraiser to restart the GOTR program in the area.

GOTR is a program that allows girls 3rd-5th grade to train and participate in a 5k while learning healthy life styles,but the program was canceled for its Spring 2017 season. Sarah Dowell, GOTR coordinator, canceled the season due to do funds and desired new lesson plans.

“Our council Girls on the Run East Central Illinois serves girls in Coles, Douglas, Effingham, Fayette, Piatt, Moultrie, and Shelby counties.Dowell partnered with Ashli Crowe, a LuLaRoe sales representative to help raise funds for the next season starting in September 2017,” said Dowell.

The fund raised also provided scholarships to families who can’t afford to enroll in the GOTR program.

Crowe said, “I will be donating 15% of sales to GOTRECI, and LuLaRoe Home Office will match my donation,” in efforts to save the program in the area.

Thirty-two people attended the event althought the profit of the fundraiser is uncertain. Dowell intends to partner with LuLaRoe again in the future.
