Foundation running programs start soon

Follow The Republic:

Two youth running programs sponsored through Foundation For Youth will begin Monday.

Registration for Girls on the Run is available at 10 local elementary schools through Friday. The 12-week program for girls in Grades 3 to 6 prepares them for a 3.1-mile run on June 1. Practices are held twice a week after school for 75 minutes.

Foundation For Youth also sponsors a running program for boys called Trailblazers. This new program is offered to boys ages 8 to 13. The Trailblazers also practice twice a week after school and will join the Girls on the Run teams for the June 1 run.

Program fee is $60 and includes a T-shirt, water bottle, running journal, run entry and snacks after each practice. A sliding fee scale and scholarships are available.
