HERO Boys is a youth development and engagement program for boys in 3rd– 5th grades. Using running as a base activity HERO Boys inspires boys to discover the character and courage that resides inside each one of them to be brave, stand for that which is right, and use their talents and strengths to lead and set the positive example amongst their peers. The school-based program is 8 weeks long and culminates with a 5k race. (This spring the race will take place on April 22nd at Candy Cane Park in Chevy Chase, MD) Practices will be once a week on Tuesdays afternoons, starting February 27th from 3:50 to 5:00 pm and for 8 weeks. Volunteer coaches include TMES parent Kim Kochuba and TMES staff member Bill Tyson. The program cost is $50 and financial aid is available. (Race fees not included).
Girls On the Run (GOTR) is an afterschool program for girls in 3rd through 5th grade that meets twice a week in small teams of 10-20 girls, and teaches life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games.
Practices will be Mondays 3:55 - 5:15 and Fridays from 8:00am to 9:15am.
The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.
Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At the season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies, complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
If you are interested in coaching, please contact Marianne Wonnacott at firstname.lastname@example.org .You do not need to be a runner to coach GOTR! There is limited space, so register early!
