Meet Limitless Citlalli!

GOTR girl turned volunteer Practice Partner, Citlalli Grijalva, is a true ambassador and advocate for Girls on the Run. Citllalli participated in Girls on the Run in the third grade and returned this season as a Practice Partner. Practice partners support a team of girls by assisting coaches with lessons and cheering girls on at the QFC Girls on the Run 5K. Citlalli told us that she was excited to return as a Practice Partner this season because the program “left such a positive impact on my life that still affects me to this day and I wanted to find a way to spread that same impact to younger girls.” She did just that! As a Practice Partner, Citlalli empowered her coaches and team this past season with her infectious smile and positivity. Citlalli says the role allowed her to continue to learn and grow from Girls on the Run:

Now that I came back as a practice partner I got to see the program in a whole another perspective. Seeing how these young girls developed their thinking throughout the program was truly inspiring, they became more open minded and kinder towards their fellow teammates and others. [The girls] allowed me to clearly see that teamwork and kindness can happen anywhere among any age.

Let’s hear it for wise-beyond-her-years GOTR alum and Practice Partner, Citalli! We’re so proud of the young woman she’s become and are thrilled she has continued to stay involved with Girls on the Run. Thank you, Citlalli, for serving as an amazing role model and mentor for GOTR girls and girls everywhere!
