RKF Chair Gloria Wall
Gloria Wall is the Rocketkidz Foundation Board Chair. She is from Liberty, MS but has lived all over the country before finally making her home and building her business in Baton Rouge. Gloria attended college in Duluth, MN, and has lived in Baton Rouge since 1996. She has been married for 17 years and has three stepsons and four adorable grandchildren. As a physical therapist and owner of GoPT, Gloria has gotten to know many athletes in the Baton Rouge area. Like many triathletes, Gloria says she got into triathlon because she got bored with running. Gloria has done many races including most recently, Ironman Chattanooga. She says of all the gear she has used to train for that distance, she cannot live without her Garmin watch. She says everyone she meets inspires her in some way. As a member of RKF she is hoping to promote active and fit families. Gloria is a true leader on the RKF Board and has served in various roles over the years. She is a go getter and does not take "no" for an answer. Her mantras are "Don't worry be happy" and "Do what you like, like what you do."
