Girls on the Run accepting new sites

Girls on the Run of New Hampshire is currently accepting new sites for the Fall 2018 season. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that teaches key life skills to girls in third through eighth grade through dynamic discussions and fun games that creatively integrate running.

Inspire girls in your area to be joyful, healthy and confident by bringing Girls on the Run to your local school or community facility. Each site must have a minimum of two volunteer coaches, a safe space for physical activity, and be able to provide an outdoor meeting location.

At each site, volunteer coaches lead teams of 8-15 girls through research-based curricula that include lessons on confidence, treating others with care and contributing to the community. During the 10-week program, girls complete a community service project and become physically and emotionally prepared to participate in a celebratory 5K event.
