Healthy Kids Running Series

April 11, 2016

Today I have a guest blogger that will share a bit about her experience with the Healthy Kids Running Series.  


You can learn all about them HERE or go to their Facebook page HERE to keep up to date on their events.


My friend Jessica Stroven attended the first of the Spring series this Saturday and had this to say about it:

“My youngest(5), Grey was more than excited to be a part of his first community sport.  We have been waiting in anticipation since we signed up!  The Healthy Kids Running Series gives kids of all ages the opportunity to participate in races.  Each age group runs a distance that is perfect for their size and ability.  Before the race, volunteers lead the children in warm up activities; then, race time!  








I was so impressed with the organization of the first event: from the sign up, prices, packet pickup, and volunteers.  I am recommending the Heathy Kids Race Series to all!

Grey did amazing!  The smile on his face shows you how truly proud he was of his accomplishments!  What an amazing day!” -Jessica Stroven
