Healthy Kids Running Series takes off this Sunday

Program encourages kids to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle

The series will be a five week program with a race each week beginning this Sunday Sept. 16th. Each race will feature age appropriate running events including the 50yard dash, the 75 yard dash, the 1/4 mile, the 1/2 mile and the one mile run.

The weekly competitions will earn each runner points that will count to their individual total. At the end of the series the children with the most points will receive trophies. Regardless of performance every participant will be given a medal and gift bag for their achievements.

The aim of the series is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for the children, help increase their self-esteem, and to make new friends.
