8/19/2022 - Character Strides

girls running

“Creating strong runners from the inside out!”

Character Strides is a 9-week educational and physical activity program for girls in 3rd through 6th grades. Character building and life skills are integrated with a running program to encourage girls to be strong both inside and out. Our goal is for every girl to be confident in who she is, who she can become and what she can achieve. Each session will include a specific character building/life skill lesson in addition to a guided workout that will include dynamic warm-up, age appropriate running, cool-down and most importantly fun! We celebrate the season at the end with a 5k celebration run!

Classes will be held at Settler’s Park: meeting at the Gazebo. 280 Crook Horn Road, Southbury, CT 06488.
