We know you’ve got it. You’re self aware and lead a confident life. You are just the coaching volunteer we need, and this group of girls is looking up to you to learn these same powerful principles. Girls on the Run is a chance to get outside, laugh, jump, and cheer. Most importantly, it’s a chance for you to help girls realize their full potential.
The girls are waiting for you, Coach!
