Leaving a footprint for South Jersey’s youth

It’s never too early to get a running start. At least that is the mindset of Cinnaminson community organizer Lauren Leight, who wants to get even 2- to 3-year-olds on their feet this fall for The Healthy Kids Running Series. The Healthy Kids Running Series, a nonprofit originating in Pennsylvania, has helped many towns nationwide dust off their running shoes. The series, held twice a year, once in the spring and fall, accommodates kids from all age demographics. Children from Pre-K to eighth grade are invited to run in the race most appropriate for their age group.
