Meet Emma Wagner

GOTR NOVA wants to ensure #everygirl has access to our program and the tools needed to be strong, healthy and confident. Here are a few ways to support future GOTR NOVA strong girls.
Come on back! As a Girls on the Run of NOVA Alumni, we want to offer you opportunities to come back together and make a difference with the next generation of GOTR NOVA strong girls.
Alumni Opportunities and Events
As a Girls on the Run of NOVA Alumni there are a number of fun, rewarding, and valuable ways to come back together and make a difference throughout the year.
Volunteer at the 5k and Other Events
There are numerous ways to volunteer with GOTR NOVA as an Alumni! If coaching isn’t for you, perhaps volunteering at the 5k, helping assemble team materials, or pitching in at the office is a better fit for you. And remember, any and all volunteer hours with GOTR NOVA can count towards community service requirements. Get more details about volunteer opportunities with GOTR NOVA here
