You Go Girl!

By Meg Waldron, TPS faculty member and You Go Girl club director

"You Go Girl!"

That cheer is close to the heart of TPS because it is the name of our after school girls running club. But it's also close to the heart of the family behind Alex's Lemonade Stand – the organization that raises money to fight childhood cancer in memory of their daughter Alex.

A number of years ago, when You Go Girls was participating in an Alex's Lemonade Stand 5K, we were fortunate to meet Alex's dad, who was so touched that our club name was his daughter's rallying cry that he came over to thank us.

You Go Girls is calling all past and present YGGers, as well as the broader TPS community, to run/walk in the Alex's Lemonade Stand 5K at the Please Touch Museum on Sunday, November 8.

Go to the site, register as an individual, and put your team name as You Go Girls.
