Every Girls on the Run program participant chooses or is paired with a volunteer Running Buddy to support her in her goal of completing the season-culminating 5k run! Together on race day, the pair will run, encourage one another and celebrate the huge accomplishment of setting a goal, achieving it and crossing the finish line! Volunteer running buddies are needed to support and encourage each girl through the course and to the finish line! Running buddies are background checked and must be able to complete a 5K in about 30-45 minutes with a mix of running and walking. Contact Michelle for info on becoming a Running Buddy!
