Practice 5Ks take place at the school during a regular lesson. Spring schedule to follow.
June 4, 2017 1PM on the University at Albany campus. More information to follow.
Being a Running Buddy is one of our most rewarding volunteer opportunities. With opportunity comes responsibility. These girls are counting on you to provide the motivation and encouragement to keep going week to week. How? Through weekly notes written just to them. It's important to maintain consistency not only to keep your girl motivated, but for many of our girls, it is vital that they have a consistent, positive adult engaged throughout the season.
The other two commitments are to attend the Practice 5K at your girl's school (see schedule above) and run/walk in the Final 5K on Nov. 19, 2016.
Running Buddies are NOT expected at every practice. You are welcome to come meet your girl and see the team in action.
