Be a 5k Volunteer!

ABOUT THE EVENT: Our Girls on the Run 5ks are unlike any other event.  It is a community celebration of Girl Power and the successful completion of our ten week empowerment program. By the day of the 5k, the girls’ 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 faces painted, and wearing tutus and capes they gather with their teammates to hold hands and head to the starting line. With each GOTR girl proudly wearing the number “1” on her bib, our 5k is a non-competitive event that creates memories to last a lifetime!

Each spring we celebrate our girls’ accomplishments with three 5ks – Southern, Central, and Northern Vermont. As a volunteer, there’s a job to fit everyone’s availability or talent – from face painting and handing out beads, to setup and breakdown, or handing out water and snacks. It’s a fun day that would not happen without you. (plus you get to wear your red GOTRVT Volunteer shirt with pride!)
