WE Run is an after-school running mentorship program that pairs 3rd and 4th graders with 5th and 6th grade mentors. Both boys and girls are invited to participate and no running experience is necessary. This 10-week program meets twice a week for 1 hour and focuses on character-, self-esteem-, and mentorship-building activities paired with physical activity, specifically running. We recently completed our pilot program at Cherokee Elementary. Take a look at all the fun we had in the picture gallery above!
WE Run partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Butler County so that all participants of our program ran in the League of Defenders – Run for Kids 5k April 14th (some of them running in their first 5k)! Because of this partnership, the students were able to provide BBBS a generous donation of $1,000 that will help more children of Butler County find a mentor to help guide, support, and care for them!
WE Run has also partnered with Queen City Running in West Chester to provide running shoes to each participant! This way, each student has the chance to run safely and comfortably!
