Kids Run This Town is a nonprofit, empowerment program for youth of all fitness levels. We use running and active games to help teach resilience and self-confidence by transforming traditional running games and drills into powerful life lessons. When children are with us, they are getting a great workout AND building strength of character.
We believe that every child is able to compete and reach goals they once thought were beyond them.
We focus on 8 core principles we've put together create a unique and powerful curriculum; one which combines physical health (running skills) with strength of character. Each session has been thoughtfully designed to facilitate a growth mindset. Through the drills and games, kids are reminded that they are strong, powerful, able, and empowered to take on an attitude that whether they run it, or walk it, whatever they do - they can rock it!
Our goal is to empower kids and build character through physical activity. We want to introduce running as a fun and rewarding activity for all ability fitness levels. Running is a life long sport and our programs will set the foundation for a growth mindset, build confidence and show kids they CAN do hard things. The skills learned in Kids Run This Town will benefit kids for years to come.
Kids Run This Town strategically partners with local schools, community centers, organizations, and professionals to receive insight into prospective participants and maximize our impact in the communities we serve.
Our mission is to empower, encourage and build character through fitness + fun.
