ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – The woman behind "Girls on the Run," a global movement for young girls to stay active, will join other inspiring women for an event in St. Louis Thursday.

Molly Barker joins other women who have given the famous talks on Ted.com, a site that features powerful and uplifting speeches.

"There's a group of women from all over the nation talking about what gives them joy," Barker said. "What inspires them. What drives them. And I'm excited because I'll get to hear these speeches."

Thursday's event at "Plush" on 3224 Locust St. is sold out. You can hear more from Barker Friday on Today in St. Louis.
