Girls on the Run

Girls on the runLafayette is launching a Girls on the Run Program in March, and we are looking for a few volunteer coaches! Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grade.

Do coaches have to be runners?
Not a runner? Not a problem! Girls on the Run is for anyone looking to inspire our girls to be healthier, more confident, and empowered! This is much more than a running program.

When is the program and how long are practices?
The Girls on the Run season runs from March until May. The girls practice Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:45pm at Lafayette Elementary. As a coach, this means between 5-6 hours per week, including prep time, practice time, and time for communication with families and GOTR staff.

Find out more at: WWW.GIRLSRUN.ORG
Interested parents can contact Carolyn Whipple at cvwhipple@seattleschools.org or 206-252-9525

Since the beginning of this program in the 1930s, more than 54,000 Golden Acorn Awards have been presented to volunteers throughout Washington state.
