I’m about to head out to watch some friends compete in the Chicago Marathon, so I though that I’d run with that theme. As I ran down the list of charities associated with the Chicago Marathon, I tried look for organizations that are not only use today’s event to support great causes, but also using running as part of their mission. Girls on the Run is a perfect fit. They are a nationwide organization based in Charlotte, NC that “educates and prepares girls for a life time of self-respect and healthy living.” They focus on training girls aged eight to thirteen years old for 3.1 mile/5k events with the main goal of encouraging “positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development.” I’ve always hated running, but I totally understand why people like it—and watching 40,000 people compete in a marathon is a perfect example of what a great personal development tool it can be.

Run For It

I could tell you all about Girls on the Run, but that doesn’t make much sense when there’s a great video about the organization from the founder (you’ll have to click through to the original post to see it if you’re reading in your e-mail).

Now, Girls on the Run may be based in North Carolina, but they have chapters all over the country—42 states to be exact (and many states with multiple chapters). You can take a look at all of Girls on the Run’s locations here. Even though Girls on the Run’s Jobs page doesn’t currently list any opportunities, it’s quite possible that there may be opportunities at a more local level. If you love running and want to help support the personal development of young women, then you should reach out to both the national organization and the local chapters about potential jobs. It’s worth a shot.
