Girls on the Run PowerBar Nutrition Clinic

Last Wednesday I got the chance to hang out with the awesome Girls on the Run crew at P.S. 333 (Manhattan School for Children)! I have volunteered at a couple of the GOTR 5ks but this was my first time attending a practice. GOTR is an amazing youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. The organization teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games and culminates with a celebratory 5k running event.

After meeting the girls, I shared some basic sports nutrition tips and provided PowerBar samples. As a member of PowerBar Team Elite, I am asked to engage in community outreach and education. My involvement with Girls on the Run serves as the perfect outlet! I had a blast and can’t wait to return!

It isn’t too late to register as a running buddy or general volunteer for the Spring 2014 Girls on the Run 5k held at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island on June 15th!
