Join the Movement

Whether you have a couple of hours a day, week, month or year, there are plenty of opportunities to help build strong girls with our philanthropic partner.  

Make an Impact

While each Girls on the Run council has different needs, here are some of the volunteer opportunities available. All council locations, contact information and websites can be found at

  • Become a coach or assistant coach and inspire a group of girls through their easy-to-follow curriculum over the course of 10-12 weeks. You do not have to run to be a coach, just an awesome role model! Ready, set, coach!
  • Lace up your sneakers and become a running buddy. Paired with a special girl, you have the awesome opportunity to run the 5k by her side while providing the encouragement she needs to cross the finish line. This is a powerful role!
  • Become a 5k race crew member. Help with water stops, the happy hair station and more at a Girls on the Run 5k.
  • Host a campus or community fundraising event with proceeds benefiting Building Strong Girls, and complete the Philanthropy Grant Application from the Foundation to enhance the amount raised and make a greater impact.
