GOTR Coach Honored on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ 

A Girls on the Run International employee and coach was recognized on national television this week in honor of her time as a coach. 

Nicole Wright, who also serves as the Regional Director of Council Development, Southern Region, was surprised on the March 5 episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, where she was named a “Drew-Gooder” in honor of her efforts inspiring young girls and helping to build self-confidence for life. 

The segment, sponsored by Hershey’s, kicked off with GOTR staff, participants, and volunteers all recounting how Wright’s endless support of our mission has inspired and empowered them. “Coach Nicole, you make me feel like I can do anything because you coach us so well,” said Marie, age 11. 

In addition to their recognition of Wright, The Drew Barrymore Show also donated $5,000 to Girls on the Run to support our curricula and programs.
