Girls on the Run - 5K Running Buddy
Running buddies will run/walk/hop/skip alongside one of our Girls on the Run participants as she completes the 5k run. You will be her #1 cheerleader and encourage her the entire race. You will be there to support her as she completes the 5k and ensure her safety such that she does not veer off the 5k planned route.
The Girls on the Run Ottawa 5k event is the culmination of the Girls on the Run Spring season. The girls will have all completed a 10 week program in which they have used running to learn about useful life skills such as confidence, character, care, connection, and competence. This closing event gives program participants of all abilities a tangible sense of accomplishment. Crossing the finish line instills confidence through completion and is a joyful moment program participants always remember!
5k running buddies support the girls during the 5k. The time commitment would be from 9:45am to 1pm on June 10th, 2023.
