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 Business Spotlight: Manor of Hope

Manor of Hope is a long term residential addiction rehab support program for young men. Located in a beautifully renovated farmhouse on Egypt Road in Phoenixville, Manor of Hope is a state of the art drug and alcohol recovery community that offers long term treatment and continuing care for young men with substance abuse issues.

The owner/mastermind of the Manor of Hope, Steve Killelea, dealt with his own son's addiction problem for over 10 years. Steve tried to help his son and sent him to many places, only to have him relapse - until he decided to look outside the US and in Canada found a "therapeutic community" where his son John found sobriety. Their program model inspired both Steve and John to create their own version right here in Phoenixville.

They also have created the "Building Futures" program which partners with small local businesses to help mentor and teach the young men vocational skills. One of the current residents named Steve has been working …
