This weekend

The St. Louis Go! Marathon is already here and we wanted to share some of the plans for the event:

Go! Saint Louis MOHF
Support Team

Donation Information:
Please use the following link to support the MOHF Go! Saint Louis Team:
Shirt pickup:
Shirts can be picked up at Provalo in Webster Groves on April 5th from 5:30-8pm. Provalo will be throwing a huge party for the team, including a band, sidewalk chalk, a bubble blower, and specials on dinner! Paisley, the amazing boutique next door to Provalo will also be donating 25% of sales that day to MOHF.  Please bring $20/shirt cash or a check made out to The Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation when picking up your shirt.
Parking Information:
Arrival Time:  6:30 a.m. – 7:00 a.m.
Parking can be difficult to find near the start and finish line and the lots and streets will fill up quickly.  If you choose to park near the “Course Cheer Location” (see below) it may be easier to find a place to park.  This location is about a quarter mile away from the finish line.  Parking lots near the “Course Cheer Location” can be found at 18th & Chestnut and 20th& Chestnut.
Course Cheer Location:
Arrival Time:  7:00 a.m. - 7:30 a.m.
Meet on the south side (the side that is closest to Market) of Olive between 16th & 18th streets to support race participants as they run by.  Be sure to stand on the south side of the street so you will not have to cross the course to get to the finish line location.  This will also assist the MOHF runners as they will know where to look for you as they run along Olive!  This location is around the six mile marker on the race course, MOHF runners may begin to pass through this location at approximately 7:35 a.m.
Finish Line Location
Arrival Time:  8:20 a.m.
Leave the Olive Location around 8:10 a.m. and walk approximately a quarter of a mile to the Market & 15th area.  The finish line area will be very crowded with spectators so the MOHF support team may move west on Market, to find a less crowded area, to increase visibility.  Stand on the north side of Market to avoid having to cross the course.  If you are unable to meet at the Olive Course Cheer Location, feel free to join the MOHF support group here!
Family Reunion Location:
Arrival Time:  9:30 a.m.
After the runners complete their run they will enter a secure area that is not open to those not running the race.  After runners exit this area, they will enter the family reunion area.  The family reunion area is organized by letters; runners typically meet their family under the letter of their last name.  We will meet under the “O” in honor of Mighty Oakes.  After the half marathon runners and relay team runners have met the MOHF support team in the family reunion area, we will all move to the “Finish Line Location” to support those running the full marathon.
Additional Information:
“Be Mighty” Signs:  Feel free to create your own MOHF “Be Mighty” sign to show your support!  We will also be decorating signs Friday night at Provalo.
After the race, there will be a team reunion/celebration at Llewelyn’s in Webster.  Hope to see everyone there!

We wanted to be sure to thank all of our friends that have helped to organize this event, especially Sarah and Rob Skinner, Kate Rycenga, Cindy Underwood-Oleshak, Joel Bittle, and Stephanie Harris. Your kindness and thoughtfulness is humbling. We are blessed to have you as our friends, and I know if our children are watching us now, they will grow up to be thoughtful and kind as well. And of course, MIGHTY! And to everyone that is running on Saturday, we love you, thank you and we don't have to encourage you to BE MIGHTY, we already know you are!! XOXO, Becky
