coach a team

Warm-up your spirit fingers, lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong and healthy. Teams of volunteer coaches facilitate our easy-to-follow curriculum with small groups of girls over the course of 10 weeks. Amidst the conversation, laughter, hugs and energy awards, you will witness transformational change in the girls and don't be surprised if you realize that you are positively changing as well!

be a running buddy

Share a girl’s exhilaration and excitement as she crosses the finish line of her celebratory 5K. For many girls, this is the biggest challenge and greatest accomplishment of their Girls on the Run or Heart & Sole experience. One of their favorite parts is having their very own Running Buddy by their side!

volunteer at our 5k

The Girls on the Run 5K would not be possible without the help of amazing volunteers who believe in our mission and show up to support our girls. Whatever your special skills and talents, we have a role for everyone.
