Girls on the Run
2/6/2017 5:00 am
Girls on the Run NEEDS parent volunteers to help us keep this incredibly transformational program at HFE next Fall. You would need to complete a coach training session, and a CPR certification session in July/August. The 10-12 week season will begin the week of August 28th. No running experience required. Just a desire to have fun, display positive, joyful, kind and compassionate mentoring traits to a group of 15 girls for a 90 minute lesson, twice weekly. The more coach volunteers we get involved, the less of a time commitment. Click here to learn more!
