Girls on the Run Coaches Needed

Girls on the Run is gearing up for another fantastic season of fun, friendships and 5K fun at North Park Elementary School, and we’re looking for positive-minded, can-do women to coach from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. Tuesday/Thursday from Feb. 19 to May 4.
You DON’T have to be a runner to get involved – you just need to live a healthy lifestyle, project a positive attitude and have passion to help young girls put their best foot forward.
Girls on the Run is an innovative after-school program that combines exercise, education and mentoring to promote self-esteem, goal-setting and healthy living in third- through fifth-grade girls. Teams meet for 75 minutes twice a week for two months to play interactive running games and train for a 5K run/walk. Lessons on goal-setting, health, communication, teamwork and self-respect are incorporated with the physical training, so girls get a well-rounded positive experience in a noncompetitive atmosphere.
The overall time commitment for first-time coaches is about 36 hours. That includes up to 20 meetings with your team; a few hours on 5K day; and coach training.
Coaches must commit to two days per week; no part-time applicants please.
