Check out the video that JRP volunteer Chris created for Girls on the Run Los Angeles: http://vimeo.com/101560005. GOTR empowers girls through running, and what a lot of adorable kids in the video! Many thanks to Chris for sharing his video production skills and GOTR (http://www.gotrlosangeles.org) and JRP!
If you’re interested in getting involved with this great organization, they’re currently looking for coaching and mentoring volunteers. Season after season, volunteer coaches say that coaching for Girls on the Run is the single most REWARDING volunteer commitment they have ever made. GOTR is a transformational after-school program that creatively integrates running into character development lessons that inspire girls to love who they are, withstand the pressures of youth, and activate their limitless potential! No running experience needed! Join one of 50 teams throughout LA County to help facilitate the 12-week program with a powerful group of 3rd-8th grade girls. The program culminates with a Celebratory 5K Event, but for coaches and girls the finish line is just the beginning!
