Kids on Track
Kids on Track teaches children at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County to set fitness goals and participate in exercise as important parts of physical and mental health. Junior League volunteers train with the members of the Club, ages 6-18 years, over the course of the semester leading up to their celebratory training finale – a one or two-mile fun run/track event.
Referencing the Triple Play Walk/Run Challenge curriculum provided by the Club, JLOC volunteers educate Club members on healthy activities to support their running goals, encourage a fitness routine for participants to use throughout the week, and monitor their progress. JLOC volunteers plan the final fun run/track event for Club members, as well as run alongside Club members who participate in other community runs, such as the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon run in April of each year.
