Top 5 Reasons to Love Coaching Girls on the Run
As a proud partner of Girls on the Run – Twin Cities, we’ve seen first hand how one person’s actions can have a big impact. Girls in our community are calling on YOU to be that person.

Don’t worry if you’re not a “runner.” Girls on the Run – Twin Cities is seeking responsible, enthusiastic adults (of all genders!) with a commitment to preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.

About Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program for 3rd-8th grade girls. Participants develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care, create positive connections with peers and adults and make a meaningful contribution to community and society. Each session is led by trained volunteer coaches that guide and mentor the girls. The ten-week program concludes with all participants completing a celebratory 5k event which gives them a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. What started as a small start-up serving 24 girls in the spring of 2012 has spread quickly across the Twin Cities and into southeastern Minnesota to serve 3,400 girls at more than 200 sites in the spring of 2019.
