Mason County "Girls on the Run"

Volunteers Needed for Girls on the Run® Program

Girls on the Run is an experiential learning program for pre-adolescent girls that combines training for a 5K run/walk event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting warm-ups and workouts that encourage positive, healthy growth and development. The program was developed seven years ago by social worker Molly Barker, a counselor and accomplished athlete, to help prevent emotional difficulties and substance abuse problems that often appear in adolescent girls.

Girls on the Run will be offered to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade girls in Mason County, as a 7-9 week session beginning in April. The participants will meet twice a week for 90 minutes with a flexible schedule being created by each individual coach.

Please attend the community forum on February 12th, 2008 at Ludington’s City Hall at 7pm in the community room. This forum will allow for information and answers to questions regarding the program. A sign up sheet is also be available for those who are interested in coaching a team.

Those who are unable to attend the forum and are interested in volunteering or would like more information about the program please call Jamie Healy at the City of Scottville. (231) 757-4729
