Lunch Creates Connection for Evangelical Community Hospital and Girls on the Run

April 28, 2017


Kendra Aucker, Evangelical Community Hospital President and CEO, had a unique opportunity to have lunch with Cassidy Kibler and Tori Ross and their leader, Leslie Imhoof, of Girls on the Run® (GOTR) Greater Susquehanna Valley to discuss their involvement with the GOTR program. This first event of its type for both organizations creates a connection between business, community, and the participants of Girls on the Run by building relationships that help mentor the girls as they go through the program.
Cassidy and Tori shared with Kendra their experience with GOTR and why it is important to them to be part of the program. Kendra was able to speak to the girls one-on-one about the Hospital and its role in the community as well as share life experiences of raising her now-adult daughters in this community, her career journey, and the importance of establishing passion for what you do.
Serving girls in grades 3 through 8 across Snyder, Northumberland, Montour, Union, Columbia, and Lycoming Counties, GOTR is a positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. GOTR’s core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development - their physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors
Evangelical has long been a supporter of the GOTR program in many ways. In addition to financial support, the Hospital has provided CPR training for the coaches and those who interact with the girls as they advance their running skills and has also provided staff to serve as coaches.
