Calling All Atlanta Volunteers!!

September 30, 2010

Girls on the Run Atlanta 5K

It’s once again getting closer to our Fall New Balance Girls on The Run 5K and we could use your help! The race will begin and end at the Atlanta Youth Soccer Association’s Arizona Soccer Field on Sunday, November 14th at 9:00am. If you aren’t able to run the race but would still like to participate, this is a fantastic way to pitch in. We will need volunteers leading up to the event as well as on race day, so there’s something for everyone’s abilities and schedules.

About The Race: Atlanta Youth Soccer Association and Girls on the Run of Atlanta are excited to host the 2010 Atlanta’s Girl on the Run 5K.  Last year’s race 5K brought together 1,100 runners from all over greater Atlanta, and we anticipate over 1,400 participants to join the fun this year.   The mission of Atlanta’s Girl on the Run 5K is to bring together Atlanta communities to promote healthy life choices and build self-esteem through the goal setting activity of running/walking a 5K.  Proceeds to benefit Atlanta Youth Soccer Association & Girls on the Run of Atlanta.  To register or check out more about the event, click here
