STRIDE is a fun fitness and running program for boys in grades 3rd - 5th. Boys have the chance to share their thoughts and opinions about various life topics in a safe, encouraging environment that helps them develop character while building their running endurance to compete in a 5K.
Success + Teamwork + Respect + Inspiration + Determination = Excellence in Character
We encourage boys to exhibit excellence in character in all aspects of their lives, make healthy choices and build confidence by leading them through a curriculum that incorporates fun activities and running.
To provide a high quality program for all boys in third through eighth grade where the focus is on fun and fitness
To increase the confidence of participants by helping them feel good about themselves and their abilities
To create an opportunity to share information about various topics to help them reach a “whole person” excellence by being better individuals, students, team members, athletes and members of their community
To provide a valuable experience for our coaches with a program that will improve their lives and the lives of the participant
