STRIDE is a fun running program for boys in grades 3 through 5. Boys have the opportunity to express their thoughts and opinions about various life topics in a safe, encouraging environment that helps expand their character while building their running endurance to complete a 5K or 3.1 mile event.
Over the course of 10 weeks, trained volunteer coaches will meet with the boys twice a week, for 75 minutes. They will weave important topics and discussion into fun games and running activities. All shapes, sizes, and abilities are celebrated and welcome.
BECOME A COACH
STRIDE is run almost exclusively by volunteers, being a coach is a fun and easy way to change lives! Each site requires 3-5 volunteer coaches. We provide all the required training and coaching supplies. You DO NOT need to be a runner to be a coach. We welcome both men and women who have the time, energy, and willingness to make a difference. Interested? Email questions related to coaching STRIDE to Sarah Dowell, Community Programs Director.
