Volunteering

Volunteer with Girls on the Run / Running Buddies Needed!

Volunteer and Become a Running Buddy with Girls on the Run!

It's easy and fulfilling to serve as a Running Buddy. A female Running Buddy is paired with a Girls on the Run participant during the practice 5K run/walk and again at the final 5K run/walk. Running Buddies encourage her girl to do her best, whether it's walking, running or a combination a both. The girls love the special one-on-one attention and look up to their Buddies. Two short time commitments, yet the rewards are vast.

Girls on the Run, a life-changing after-school program for 3rd through 5th grade girls, combines self-esteem enhancing lessons with running workouts and games to develop the whole girl-her physical, mental, emotional and social self.
