Rebecca first fell in love with the program when her oldest daughter joined GOTR and asked her to be her running buddy.  She then jumped at the chance to be a volunteer coach for the same team at Bradford Heights Elementary school for 2 seasons.   And now her middle daughter is able to complete her first season.  Rebecca is thrilled she has the chance to work closely with the GOTR and STRIDE coaches and teams as a Branch Coordinator and help spread awareness about these amazing programs in our area.
