girlsontherunWe want to bring Girls on the Run to Riverdale and need three volunteer coaches.  Warm-up your spirit fingers, lace up your sneakers, and inspire a group of 3rd – 5th grade girls to be strong and healthy.

Teams of three volunteer coaches facilitate an easy to follow curriculum with groups of 8-15 girls over the course of 10 weeks (March – May).  Amidst the conversation, laughter, hugs, and energy awards, you will witness transformational change in the girls. Don’t be surprised if you realize that you are positively changing as well! The groups meet twice a week for 90 minutes. Coaches receive training, lesson plans, and all the materials and guidance needed for success.

If you are interested, email catherine.gay@autodesk.com. We’re collecting interest to see if we should bring a team to Riverdale this spring. Girls on the Run is SO much more than a running program.
