STRIDE is a fun and exciting fitness and running program for boys in 3rd to 5th grade. The program encourages boys to exhibit excellence in character in all aspects of their lives, make healthy choices and build confidence by leading them with curriculum that incorporates discussion, team building activities, games and fun running workouts that build endurance so the boys can successfully complete a 5K at the end of the season. The team meets twice a week for 75 minutes and is lead by trained coaches. Throughout the program, the focus is on doing one’s personal best, not competing with each other. The boys learn the importance of making good decisions, being a good friend, working as a team, setting goals and working to achieve them.
