Brownieland’s Robyn Kranz kicked off 2018 by volunteering as a coach with Girls On The Run, an Atlanta nonprofit dedicated to helping young women fulfill their potential by decreasing the percentage of at-risk activities and empowering a generation of self-aware girls who are tomorrow’s role models for a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Girls on the Run (GOTR) inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The program ends with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event at Atlantic Station, which Robyn and her team ran this past weekend!
Here are Robyn’s thoughts on being a Girls On The Run coach so far:
The culmination of the coaching season for Girls on the Run ends with a 5K, and we ran that 5K this past weekend. The weather was beautiful, the excitement was in the air, but the best part was seeing all of the girls on my team who had trained for this event arrive excited and happy. In the beginning of the season until now, we have been running, sharing stories, and learning about what it takes to be a great friend, and to love yourself. These are all goals of the program. The growth of these girls emotionally and physically was just so inspiring. I am excited to coach again next season, and hopefully work with another group of amazing girls who will move forward in life with the confidence and ability to be the best they can. Thank you so much to Girls on the Run Atlanta for being such an amazing organization and giving us all the tools support and inspiration we need to help bring these girls to their full potential.
