Girls on the Run Needs Coaches

Spring 2012 Coaches Needed for Conestoga Elementary School!

A lot more than a running program…Girls on the Run is a life-changing character development program for girls in 3rd through 5th grades.  This after-school program addresses all aspects of a girl’s development including her physical, mental, emotional and social well-being.  Young girls are empowered with a greater sense of self-awareness, a sense of achievement and a foundation in team building to help them become strong, self-confident women.
