RCAA & Girls on the Run 5K Volunteer Opportunity

Girls on the Run is a nation wide organization that helps the more than 200 local councils to organize young girls in 3rd through 8th grade to come out after school to participate in an enrichment and running program.  The program inspires self confidence, teaches life skills, and gets girls who may not have other opportunities to move, learn teamwork and meet new friends.  The program culminates is a 5K run/walk/crawl – any way to cross the finish line. RCAA is partnering with GOTR to help with this final 5K event!
