Girls on the Run is coming to Wolf Swamp School!

posted Feb 22, 2016, 6:40 AM by Cindy Topitzer
Girls on the Run is a unique 10 week (twice weekly) after-school program led by trained
coaches that guides girls through a fun, uplifting, and proven curriculum. Through dynamic
conversation-based lessons and active games, coaches teach and model essential healthy living
skills. Some of the themes include making good friends, working in a group, resisting peer
pressure, making healthy decisions, and contributing to the community. Along the way, the
girls train together to walk or run in a 5K (3.1 mile) celebratory event with girls from other
Western MA GOTR programs. All girls in grades 3-5 are welcome - nobody needs to be a
runner. Each team will have at least one head coach and one assistant coach. Teams are 8-15
girls. For more specifics about the curriculum please visit www.girlsontherunwesternma. org .
You can also visit our Facebook page at www.faceboook/ to see pictures
from our fall season.
Wolf Swamp will host a Girls on the Run team this spring, beginning in mid-March. We are
looking for volunteers to help make this program successful, including coaches and running
buddies. Check out our volunteer opportunities on our website. Filling out a volunteer
application is as easy as a click of a button. Registration will begin in February. For any
questions or more information please contact Wolf Swamp’s site liaison Erica Brunette , or Molly Hoyt, GOTR Program Director, , (413) 3201845.
