-Girls on the Run is looking for some coaches!  We are an after-school program teaching girls to be joyful, healthy and confident while creatively integrating running into their lives.  They will be able to walk or run a 5K race at the end of the 10 week program.  The 5K race will take place the afternoon of November 13 at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove. Coaches are volunteers and can help one or two days a week.  Girls on the Run will meet after school beginning the week of September 12-16.  This is a ten week program which will wrap up November 17.  The girls meet after school two days a week. If you have the time to give to a great program for girls in grades 3 to 5, please email Ali Stevens, program director at ali.stevens@girlsontherun.org.   You may also register to be a volunteer coach on our website at www.gotrgsv.org.
