Students on the GO! is a team-based fitness program to engage high school students in the St. Louis bi-state region to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. The program provides students with an opportunity to focus on accomplishing challenging fitness goals, such as completing 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon events throughout the year. The program engages students to experience the benefits of goal setting, discipline, teamwork, improved health and a feeling of accomplishment in a positive environment.

In 2018, GO! St. Louis will partner with 16 St Louis area high schools. Principals and teachers will lead students along as they follow a 20-week incremental training program. The GO! St. Louis staff, along with outside experts, support the team members with motivation, nutrition tips and training tools to carry out the program. Students train a few days a week after school and then complete one weekly long run on Saturdays in Forest Park.

Program Goals

The goal of the program is to target students who could use the benefits of a structured running or walking activity. The program engages them to experience the benefits of goal-setting, discipline, teamwork, improved health and a feeling of accomplishment in a positive and supportive environment.
