Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization created to provide young girls in 3rd-8th grade with a program that allows them to focus on social and emotional wellness through dynamic physical activity and conversations with trained coaches. We encourage these girls to explore and embrace what makes them unique. At the end of the season, we host a celebratory race to congratulate the girls on their progress and to show off their new skills. Coaches, we need you! Coaches are individuals of various ages who volunteer to help work with the girls throughout the season and watch them grow during our program! No running experience is required and it is a great way to give back to your community and empower the next generation of women! If this sounds like an interesting opportunity, log onto today for more information on what our goal is, and how you can help! You may also contact Lynn Sherman at for more!
