Board of Directors News & Updates
Girls on the Run is pleased to welcome two new board members to our team! Nora MacZura and Carolyn White joined our board in July and each brings their unique skills, talents and perspective to our growing program.
Carolyn is a former computer consultant with the State of Illinois. She has coached numerous seasons in Jacksonville and has a strong connection to the program. She was attracted to GOTR by being a mentor to young girls and helping to provide them with tools to become strong women.She said she’s been very impressed with the curriculum as far as helping these girls, not only to become physically capable of running a 5k. but emotionally equipped to deal with adolescence.
Nora is a physician of Gynecological Oncology at Springfield Clinic. She has attended past fundraisers and personally supported GOTR. She believes this is a wonderful needed program that helps inspire young women and provide them with the confidence, skills, and determination to succeed in life. Nora said, she is so excited to be able to participate in this program in a more meaningful way and help young girls make better life choices.
We are so thankful to have both of them and look forward to what they both have to offer!
