You don't have to be a runner to be a coach, just have an appreciation for what physical activity brings to your wellbeing and a desire to empower young women.  We need small teams of coaches at each of our site locations who can commit to mentoring two days a week for the ten week fall or spring season.  We have new coach trainings scheduled for March and September prior to the season start.  If you'd like to inquire about becoming a coach, please contact Mary at 788-7863, or via our contact us form.  Attached is our coach application that will need to be completed.

Coaching Testimonial: Lea Flocchinni

When I signed up as a coach I did so with reservation. I'm not a runner nor a racer, but I wanted to encourage girls to became empowered. It was an honor to inspire them to move out of their personal boxes and push themselves to their own excellence; to encourage them to run or even walk a bit farther than they thought they could; to listen to them share their wisdom and watch them support each other; and, to be there holding their hands as we crossed the finish line of their 5k race.

My favorite day was the practice 5k.  There were two little girls who were really dragging behind everyone and just did not want to participate.  I prodded them along and as we turned the corner to the finish line, we saw the other girls had formed an arch with their hands.

Coaching Testimonial: Kathy Oliver

Although I am a woman, now unbelievably to me—approaching 60(!) I am a busy, active teacher who, after attending a talk by Kristin Armstrong in our area felt the “call” to serve the very needy (but so wonderful) students at our school. Recently I have had to face some unexpected losses in my life and being able to fill my cup by GIVING in this very small way these past two weeks in GOTR has brought me incredible JOY, almost beyond words.
