Please Consider Volunteering for Girls on the Run!

Thu, 06/20/2019 - 10:20am

We are in need of Girls on the Run (GOTR) volunteer coaches (anyone can volunteer - Moms, Dads, other family members, etc) at Manor Woods for this up and coming Fall 2019 season. GOTR is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls in 3rd-5th grade. The program combines training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goal of the program is to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The girls will meet after-school twice a week for 10 weeks with the season ending 5k to be held on December 7th in Howard County, MD. The program will start the week of September 22nd. Contact Susan Michel susan.michel@girlsontherun.org or 443-864-8593 for more information on the overall program or Kara Miller (assistant coach Spring 2019) vthokie99@hotmail.com for information on how the program is/was run at Manor Woods.
