Event & Leadership Committees - Our committees work behind the scenes and help ensure that Girls on the Run of the Big Bend runs smoothly and effectively. Volunteering on a leadership committee is a great way to give back and learn more about our organization. The following committees are currently accepting new volunteers:
Runathon Committee - Join our annual signature fundraiser team for our fall event in September.
Additionally, we are seeking a few key volunteers to serve in Leadership roles, heading up the following areas:
Genuine interest in leading a healthy life.
Interest in physical fitness or running.
Commitment to the mission of GOTR.
Reliable, honest and positive outlook on life.
Interest in the issues facing young women today.
Desire to get involved in a nonprofit organization and help create public awareness.
For the safety of our girls, all of our volunteers must complete our background check. The cost of this is $8.00. (In order to keep our costs down, we ask volunteers to cover this cost. If this is an issue, please let us know.) You will be prompted to complete the background check during the registration process.
As a nonprofit organization, Girls on the Run continually seeks to keep costs low so that we may continue to serve our girls at a reasonable fee. Below is a list of items that we would greatly benefit from receiving as donations to our local council:
Beads & Stickers
First Aid Kits
Tape/Scissors/Glue Sticks/General Office Supplies
