Registration for the spring season of the Girls on the Run and STRIDE programs is under way until March 10, with late registrations accepted until March 15. The season runs from March 11-May 31, with participants meeting two times a week to prepare for the big 5K Celebration, scheduled for June 1.
Girls on the Run leverages the power of running to help prepare girls, in grades three through eight, for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The 10-week program, during which participants meet twice a week for 90 minutes, focuses on building self-esteem and improving physical health.
STRIDE (Success + Teamwork + Respect + Inspiration + Determination = Excellence in Character), for boys in grades three through eight, uses the power of running to help prepare them for a lifetime of strong character and healthy living.
The YMCA is always looking for strong candidates to become volunteer coaches for these rewarding programs.
