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 / from .
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.
