Girls on the Run Boston
A 12-week curriculum-based program for third- through fifth-grade students, Girls on the Run of Boston, is currently looking for volunteer coaches and running buddies for the fall season. Girls on the Run inspires participants to live healthy and free from societal stereotypes while training for a 5K running event.
Coaching is a fun and rewarding volunteer experience. No coaching or running experience is necessary, but coaches must be committed to two, two-hour sessions a week helping girls be joyful, healthy and confident, using a fun, experiencebased curriculum which creatively integrates running. Requiring less of a time commitment, running buddies are an integral part in helping build the young runners’ self-esteem and healthy body image.
This past spring, teams were located in Allston, Boston, Brighton, Chelsea, Hopkinton, Hudson and Newton. The fall 2014 season extends from September to December.
