Amy Hannon, Founder and President, Godly Running Girls®
Amy is an avid recreational runner having competed in numerous, sanctioned, races from 5k’s to marathon distances, even placing in her age group numerous times. What is more important is that Amy is a Christian mother of two girls, Caitlin and Abigayle, with a heart for positively influencing girls lives through Jesus’ word and principles. Since the late 1990’s, Amy has searched for a girl’s running program centered on Christ. With each failed attempt in her search, Amy realized that the program she had desired to offer to her girls, and others, was not available. Having witnessed this void, within our own communities, Amy began to create a program that would touch the lives of numerous girls…forever. Amy founded Godly Running Girls®.
