Girls on the Run is in need of volunteer coaches!

Girls on the Run is coming to a school near you and we need Coaches!
  • Girls on the Run is a 12 week character building fitness program for girls ages 8-11 that uses the power of running to help prepare them for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program focuses on building self-esteem and improving emotional and physical health. Along the way, the girls train together to run or walk in a 5K! The program meets immediately after school, two times per week.
  • Coaches do not have to be elite runners. They just have to be women over the age of 18 who maintain a healthy lifestyle and are committed to improving the lives of girls!
  • Coaches must attend one 6-hour GOTR training session and a 2-hour CPR certification if not already certified, both are free of charge.
  • All curriculum and materials are supplied and coaches are provided with a support network and tips along the way.
  • Coaching Girls on the Run is an extremely rewarding experience. It is amazing to see the transformation that occurs in the girls’ self esteem and ability.
  • Schools where coaches are needed for this Fall: Barkley Elementary, East Pikeland Elementary, Schuylkill Elementary, and Holy Family.


If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Tina Trager at 610-917-9890 ext. 25 or by email at activatepville@pasd.com.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture.
