Volunteer coaches needed -Girls on the run!
Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a unique 10 week program. Coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-5th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. Each season culminates with a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event provides girls with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age.
This is an amazing program we would love to once again offer our Center School students, but we are in need volunteer coaches. You do not have to be a runner to coach!! More importantly, you should feel comfortable leading and talking with girls in grades 3-5. The training session for volunteers is coming up on 8/26 do please don't hesitate to be in touch if you are interested.
For more information please contact Molly Hoyt, GOTR Program Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, (413) 320-1845.
