Girls on the Run of Northern Arizona isĀ accepting applications forĀ sites to host the fall 2017 season.

The organization helps young girlsĀ in 3rd through 8th gradeĀ achieve a joyful, healthy and confident life by using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running and physical activity.

This positive youth development program brings together groups of 8-15 girls for a 10-week season, and plans for the upcoming fall 2017 season have begun! The program relies on local schools, community centers and other spaces where girls can safely gather and run laps outside. Each team will meet two times a week for 90 minutes, either before or after school, with the season culminating in a celebratory 5k event.

If you have a site that could work for the program, please apply before April 7th on the website here. For more information on the program and volunteering, visit gotrna.orgĀ orĀ call 928-522-9452.
