The Chapman community and Girls of the Run is looking for volunteer coaches for the Fall. 

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is coming back to Wallace Park in September on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-6:00pm. 

Chapman girls and other local students participated in the Fall and Spring last year with great success. We were so thrilled to be able to offer three teams at Wallace Park in the spring thanks to our amazing volunteer coaches and community. It was a great way to get the girls outside, keep moving their bodies and socialize while wearing a mask and social distancing.
