GIRLS ON THE RUN OF PORTLAND METRO

  • 4 people are interested
Girls on the Run of Portland Metro

We’re excited to announce that Girls on the Run will be back in spring of 2021!

Both Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole programs have been modified to ensure the health and safety of volunteers and participants. An updated curriculum will allow the seamless transition from in-person to virtual lessons if needed, and all coach training will be hosted online.

As a Girls on the Run (GOTR) Coach, your role will be to inspire and encourage girls to realize their full potential! The world we’re living in is stressful, and especially so for children. Over the course of the season, you’ll connect with your girls through the GOTR lessons that cover subjects such as loving oneself, celebrating others, and connecting with their community - all while helping them work toward their end-of-season goal, finishing a 5k! Our girls need the support, mentorship, and love that our GOTR Coaches offer. Will you consider being their (s)hero?
