Doesn’t Get More Super Than

Super Volunteer, Lisa Henry!

Lisa Henry is our “Super” Girl Hero of the month!  As a long- time supporter of Girls on the Run,  one of the many ways she supports GOTR is by serving as a “Super Volunteer” at the Girls on the Run 5K. As a Super Volunteer, Lisa wakes up at the crack of dawn to supervise other “day of” volunteers. Not only does she welcome them with a smile and ensure they know their role for the day, but she sets them up for success, as they support the girls, Running Buddies and families in completing the 5K. Why does she do it?

“It gives young girls the opportunity to learn about the sport in a supportive and safe environment, and the excitement of participating in their first race, face paint and all! The lessons that accompany the 5k training make this program something that they can carry with them as they grow up.”

What do the volunteers that work with her at the 5K have to say about her? Inside scoop is that Lisa is really FUN to work with!

If you want to join Lisa and her enthusiasm for women and running, consider signing up as a Super Volunteer for the 5K on May 21st. Email Race Coordinator, Ilana Balint at for more info. Or if being a Super Volunteer feels like too much responsibility, consider signing up to volunteer at the 5K this year!
