MICDS Volunteers Support Best Buddies and Girls on the Run

MICDS students are continually volunteering and supporting local non-profits and community organizations. In the past week, students supported both Best Buddies and Girls on the Run.

Best Buddies Kendra Scott Fundraiser

MICDS Best Buddies students volunteered to raise money at Kendra Scott on Wednesday night to send a student to the Best Buddies Leadership Conference this summer and for Best Buddies events on campus next year. They raised about $500 and volunteers included Reni Akande ‘19, Claire Burmeister ‘18, Maddie Goldberg ‘19 and Amanda Kalishman ‘21.

Girls on the Run 5K

MICDS students volunteered Saturday morning at the finish line of the Girls on the Run 5K in downtown St. Louis. They filled hundreds of cups of water and handed them out to racers as they crossed the line. Once the race ended, our students celebrated by dancing with the professional dancers and younger children participants.
