Minds in Motion is a six week/twelve lesson run training program for kids K-8. This program is designed
to prepare kids both physically and mentally for a 5K fun run with hopes that they will carry these skills forward and continue to challenge themselves physically and mentally in the future.

Minds in Motion focuses on 3 Pillars: Community, Fitness & Perseverance.

Kids who complete our program should be able to not only define these words but should have improved their connection to all three. The carefully designed curriculum incorporates activities that will build the kids’ fitness levels, encourage them to persevere in a community environment while helping their community raise money.


Kindness, teamwork, helping others, working together, respect for self and others.


Movement, health, exercise, outlet for mental health, skill development, fun.


Work ethic, confidence, goal setting, focus.

Minds in Motion is currently being hosted as an afterschool program, located at school.
