Volunteer with Girls On The Run

Volunteer with Girls On The Run

Girls on the Run volunteers are the core of our program. We invite you to join us to:

  • Motivate and inspire as a head, assistant or junior coach
  • Be a Running Buddy, a personal cheer leader to one of our girls in her first 5K
  • Help during the 5K to make it as special as possible for each girl
  • Serve on a behind the scenes committee (program, marketing, 5K planning, SoleMates)
  • Run your own event while raising money for GOTR as a SoleMate.

 

Running Buddies

Running Buddies join the girls during their season ending 5K run to run by their side, encourage them to do their best while also recognizing and respecting their limits.  Share the girls’ excitement and enormous sense of accomplishment as they cross the finish line!

During registration, Running Buddies choose the team they will run with on Race Day and are assigned a girl buddy by the team’s Head Coach. If you don’t have a team preference, please choose one of the teams listed as needing more buddies!
