Girls on the Run is getting ready for their second season at Findley!

Last year we filled two teams of 3rd-5th grade girls, and we’re hoping to do the same this year.

There is currently a waiting list of families trying to get into the program, but we need more volunteers to open up a second team.

Volunteer coaches do NOT need to be runners or have coaching experience. Women and men are both encouraged to apply. Training and all activity plans and materials are provided, as well as a snack budget.

Please reach out to Angie Mitlehner via  email or browse the volunteer description and submit an application at http://www.girlsontherunpdx.org/Coach.
