Each month we recognize a Girls on the Run coach for her commitment to inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. This month, we’re honored to recognize Erica Thompson and share what inspires her to volunteer…
Giving girls a true sense of accomplishment when they are able to complete that 5K race.
Importance of confidence and self-esteem as they approach adolescence.
Listening to the girls as they respond to our many probing questions.
Sharing such positive energy between the team and the coaches.
Ongoing relationships as a result of being on the team.
Necessity of good health and fitness in our lives.
That one lesson that will make a difference for one of the girls in need.
Having time to talk about issues that are important to them.
Energy awards for a job well done.
Understanding the need for balance and positive energy.
Never giving up the running or the cheerleading as the girls prepare and complete that 5K race.
