Running Cubs begins THIS FRIDAY

The Chaparral Running Cubs is a free program for 1st-5th grade students. We meet once a week on Fridays from 7:30-8:00am from September 16th-May 26th. Students go at their own pace and are encouraged to work towards their personal best. Each student is given their own card that they will hold and scan after the completion of each lap. This will help keep track of all their miles. Special charms will be given out for every 3 miles traveled. Each mile in our yard is 10 laps. They will receive lanyards for their charms that they can wear and collect as many charms as they can throughout the school year.

We are excited to get running/moving! If you would like to volunteer for Running Cubs, please click here to sign up.

All questions can be directed to Suzy Cooper: suzycooper2@gmail.com
