About

Girls on the Run Coaches
Needed for Spring 2017 at schools across Lexington
Girls on the Run is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering young girls for a lifetime of success. This innovative after-school program combines exercise and education to promote healthy habits and self-respect in third- through sixth-grade girls. Participants meet twice weekly for two months to train for a 5K run/walk. Along the way, participants make friends, play games and learn how cool it is to be a girl!

Girls on the Run is always looking for like-minded women who support our mission. You do not have to be a runner to coach or help with our programs. After a half-day training session, coaching involves about 3 hours per week for 10 weeks. The total time commitment is about 40 hours over 14 weeks. Coaching is a blast! The girls' energy and enthusiasm are contagious and you'll have just as much fun as they do. Coaches must be nonsmoking female volunteers who enjoy working with kids and are positive role models for girls.

Coach Training sessions will be held in March.

The Spring 2017 season begins in March and ends in May.
