youth running program

Ready, Set, RUN!



Ready, Set, Run! is an “easy-to-run” program designed to build confidence and character in its participants while working toward the goal of completing a 5K run.  Running is a healthy exercise alternative for children that are apprehensive about traditional team sports. In addition to running, the program places an emphasis on life skill development and offers participants an opportunity to learn about and take part in things such as healthy eating habits, positive goal setting, giving back to the community and more!
