Girls on the Run-Sierras, is holding a volunteer orientation meeting at Uncorked, Tahoe City on April 9, from 5:30 to 6:30pm. Girls on the Run is a 501c non-profit organization that provides a positive environment for pre-teen girls. The goal is to educate and empower girls at an early age to prevent at-risk activities in the future.
Volunteer coaches and mentors provide a 10 week character building program that culminates in a non-competitive 5K running event which gives the girls a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.
Coaching/mentoring sessions begin in April and run through May. The 5K run is scheduled for June 10, 2012. Volunteers and “running buddies” are needed for the 5K and other events.
Girls on the Run-Sierras is part of the international GOTR organization. To volunteer or learn more visit Girls on the Run-Sierras. 530-567-2144.
