The JLNVB is looking for Running Buddies! Running Buddies are fun loving, patient, and supportive individuals that enjoy spending time and mentoring young girls. A Running Buddy walks, runs, hops or skips with a GOTR girl during her 5k experience, keeping pace with the girl at her level, ensuring her safety, and cheering her on throughout the race. Running Buddies are needed at all fitness abilities, but do need to be able to complete a 5K in whatever method you prefer.

Running Buddies will be matched as best as possible according to pace. All Running Buddies need to complete the Girls on the Run 5k registrationHelp us reach our goal of providing 50 volunteers for this awesome event!

From Girls on the Run South Hampton Roads: The 24-lesson Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
