Running Buddies join the girls during their season ending 5K run to run by their side, encourage them to do their best while also recognizing and respecting their limits. Share the girls’ excitement and enormous sense of accomplishment as they cross the finish line!
Running Buddies are assigned individually to a team, where the coach will identify a girl or girls who might benefit from the extra encouragement and camaraderie Running Buddies provide as they complete the 5k together.
To volunteer as a running buddy contact our council director at email@example.com.
Please note that if you are not a friend or family member of the girl you are paired with, you must submit a background check in order to run in the 5K.
