Afterschool running program looking for volunteers – Benicia Herald

By Editor

Girls on the Run, an after-school life-skills and running program in Benicia is looking for two to three positive, energetic women to volunteer at Matthew Turner Elementary School.The life-coach volunteers will use a pre-written curriculum to facilitate discussions, activities and running or walking to a small group of third-to-fifth-grade girls, to bring about a greater sense of self-confidence, health and joy. Topics include the true meaning of beauty from the inside, kindness, eating healthy and stopping gossip, celebrating your uniqueness and how to stand up to bullies.

The season culminates with a non-competitive 5k fun run & a community impact project.Girls on the Run will meet at Matthew Turner Elementary twice a week for 10 weeks after school from March through mid-May, and can only host the program if volunteers jump in to be trained and supported by our fun, healthy organization.
