Sitkans Against Family Violence (SAFV) is recruiting adult coaches and volunteers for the Spring 2015 season of Girls on the Run.

Girls On The Run is a life-changing empowerment program for girls in third through fifth grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory five-kilometer (3.1-mile) running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

The 12-week program is one of several in the region. GOTR of Southeast Alaska operates Girls On The Run programs in Sitka, Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg, and Yakutat. Check out what the program is all about. The Girls on the Run program was honored at the 2014 Sitka Health Summit in October.

The Girls On The Run program in Sitka will meet twice-weekly, from 2:15-4 p.m. on either Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays, from Feb. 2 through May 2 at Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School. The season-ending 5K run will be on Saturday, May 9.

The deadline to apply to be a GOTR coach in Sitka is Saturday, Dec. 20, and there will be new coach training on Saturday, Jan. 24. Interested individuals should go to this link to apply, or contact SAFV at PO Box 6136 or, or contact Elena at 747-3370.
