Girls on the Run

REGISTRATION FOR GIRLS IS OPEN!

Girl registration opened December 1st! Girls and volunteers must be registered by February 14th. The program fee at your site is $205 per girl. As always, families can request financial assistance when registering.

GIRLS ON THE RUN COACHES NEEDED!

Girls on the Run is an after-school program dedicated to creating a world where every girl activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. For 10 weeks, girls in 3rd-5th grade will train for a 5K and learn powerful lessons about teamwork, self-esteem, and leadership. This will be our 7th year participating in the program and we are looking for amazing volunteers to help make it possible.

You don’t have to be a runner or have previous coaching experience; just the passion to positively impact girls’ lives! Girls on the Run coaches are just like YOU: teachers, parents, and community members willing to go the extra mile for our girls and who take great pride in being a role model. Coaching can be a wonderful and rewarding experience!
