Run Free Texas is a running program designed to positively impact the lives of our community’s youth by promoting physical and mental wellness.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN OUR CAUSE!
Our running program was developed to provide at-risk youth with the second chance that everyone deserves. Our innovative approach to working with troubled youth integrates physical and mental health aspects with outcomes based on the 40 Developmental Assets identified by the Search Institute.
RUN FREE TEXAS IS EXPANDING!
Run Free Texas is excited to be growing our program in Round Rock Independent School District in the fall of 2017. We provide a running program that is designed to positively impact the lives of our community’s youth. Our program will introduce students to the physical and mental health benefits of being physically active, teach them life skills, and build a support system around them in order for them to succeed in our community. Over the course of 12 weeks, select students in fourth and fifth grade participate in a supportive and fun after-school program designed to teach them the benefits of being physically active and introduce positive habits that lead to healthy life choices. Throughout the program, students explore daily challenges and discuss how their own actions and thoughts can influence their own outcomes. Students learn new skills and strategies to help them navigate life experiences.
