coach a team

Girls on the Run Heart of Kansas is a volunteer-based organization. Our program would not be possible without the amazing volunteers who donate their time and talent. Volunteers provide invaluable support to help our organization grow and touch the lives of girls across the area. Volunteer coaches work directly with 3rd – 8th grade girls to deliver the Girls on the Run and Girls on Track programs. Coaches lead the girls through fun and active lessons while helping them prepare for the Girls on the Run 5k run/walk at the end of the season. You can help educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living!

volunteer at our 5k

More than 100 volunteers are needed each spring and fall to ensure the Girls on the Run 5k is a safe and fun celebration event. Girls on the Run and Heart and Sole participants (girls in 3rd – 8th grade) come together at the end of the 10-week season to run/walk 3.1 miles and continue moving forward in life. Help us celebrate the many girls from across the Sedgwick,Sumner, Salina, Harvey, Reno, Marion and Butler County area and their achievement by volunteering at this event!
