STRIDE

Success, Teamwork, Respect, Inspiration, Determination = Excellence in Character

STRIDE for boys 3rd-5th grade

STRIDE TOO for boys 6th-8th grade

STRIDE and STRIDE TOO are character building fitness and running programs where boys have a chance to share their thoughts and opinions about various life topics. We provide a safe and encouraging environment that caters toward positive character development, while building running endurance to compete in a season end 5K.

MISSION

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.

TESTIMONIALS

STRIDE Parent Testimonial: “We have had both of our sons participate in the STRIDE program, and they absolutely loved it!  The program gave them both confidences in their running capabilities and in developing new friendships.  They learned how to set goals and achieve them with hard work.  STRIDE also taught them sportsmanship by encouraging other STRIDERS to try their best.”
STRIDE Participant Testimonial: “Mom, I really like STRIDE. It’s really helping me. I don’t think I’m bad at running any more, and it’s helping me have more muscles in my legs and it helps me feel better about myself too.”
