Cheers to Volunteers! – Caroline Heckman

Caroline Heckman is a valued volunteer with Girls on the Run – and she is making sure the next generation will be involved. Her daughter, Jocelyn Heckman, is on the Union Chapel Elementary School team that Caroline coaches. Caroline ensures that girls at the school, and throughout the Kansas City area, have the opportunity to participate, by both leading one of the largest teams and by being a donor to the program. At the big event, Caroline’s husband and their sons are always there as part of the cheering section.
