Girls on the Run seeks volunteers

Girls on the Run, a 12-week after-school program for girls ages 8 to 14, opens its registration for the fall program on Monday, Aug. 18.

Participants will engage in interactive lessons and running games; the session culminates with each girl being prepared to run in a celebratory 5k event. In addition to the physical fitness aspect of the program, issues such as bullying, healthy eating, body image and community service are covered.

Also needed are women over 18 who would like to serve as volunteer head coaches and young women ages 16 to 17 as junior coaches. To participate as a coach in the fall visit gtla.org/coach or email Volunteer Manager Katie Bradshaw at katie@gotrla.org.
