If you’ve read my blog before, then you know I’m a big fan of Girls on the Run (GOTR). This terrific organization hosts running programs for girls aged 8 to 13 to foster a healthy lifestyle, self-confidence and build positive relationships. At the end of the program, the girls “graduate” by running a 5K with their team mates, coaches and family.
And now, you can help. Support the girls as they celebrate their achievements by volunteering at the Spring GOTR 5K. Along with the good karma you’ll gain from your effort, you’ll also score an event T-shirt, coffee from Caribou plus breakfast courtesy of the Flying Biscuit. This year’s race host, West Stride, will also offer volunteers a 10% discount. So, what are you waiting for? Get out and volunteer!
Here are the details:
· Race starts at 8:00 a.m.
· Event location is West Stride at 3517 Northside Parkway in Atlanta (near OK Café)
· Contact Sara Butler at email@example.com to sign-up
This week’s route is the GOTR 5K race course from West Stride’s group page at MapMyRun. Enjoy!
