Girls on the Run is in search of volunteers who are eager to motivate and encourage young girls to be their best! Becoming a coach may be one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. Coaching requires giving up 8 weeks of your time to a handful of girls. Practices meet twice a week, in the afternoons/evenings for 60-75 minutes and ends with the girls running their first 5k! If you are interested in this amazing volunteering opportunity please contact Lindsay Peiffer at Lindsay.Peiffer@ymcasenc.org
