The Franklin County branch of Girls on the Run helps 3rd through 8th grade girls in our community by preparing them physically and emotionally for a 5k running event. The program “teach[es] life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games,” giving our girls confidence and a lifelong appreciation for fitness.

Most volunteers help as coaches or a running buddies, but there are also opportunities in development/fundraising, 5k planning, marketing, and operations.
