For all those out there with young children, you need to know about the Healthy Kids Running Series. We all know that kids are our future and it is so important to educate and inspire them to live healthy and active lifestyles. That is exactly what this program aims to do.
The Healthy Kids Running Series is a 5-week running program for Pre-K to 8th Grade children. The distances range from 50 yard, 75 yard, quarter mile, half mile and one mile races depending on the age of the kids. Each week the winners of the race get a point based off their place and at the end of the series, their points are added together to determine the winners of series.
Every single kid gets a medal and gift bag for participating. The goal of this program is to build awareness of healthy living, increase self-esteem and to make friends!
This program is run nation-wide and in tons of cities in the fall and spring. Currently, the cities offering it in Oregon are Klamath Falls and Newberg. If you live near one of these cities, be sure to check them out!
