Anyone who has been to a Girls on the Run 5k knows that it is unlike any other running event. First and foremost, it is a celebration of and for the girls who are completing a three month season of Girls on the Run programming. By the day of the 5k, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race! Positive energy abounds as the girls dance to warm-up music, get their hair "happied" and their faces painted, and gather with their teammates to hold hands as they head to the starting line.

We believe that accomplishment comes in all flavors and that everyone (friends, family, neighbors, community members, etc) who participate- whether they run, walk, hop, skip or cartwheel across the finish line- is to be honored and congratulated!

5k Volunteer Opportunities include:

* 5k Set-Up

* Water Station Volunteers

* Celebration Expo Volunteers

* Green Team Clean-up

* Course Marshals
