Our Run4Fun program is offered to elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and communities. We partner with community based organizations, schools, and communities to bring our program to young people after-school and in-school. Our Run4Fun curriculum couples life skills while developing an active and healthy life-style through running. Running technique, nutritional tips, life skills, and team building activities are integrated into the sessions. Run4Fun sessions are designed for each age group and include dynamic warm ups, age-appropriate distance runs, running technique, running games, nutritional activities, tag games, relays, destination runs, and a cool down. Run4Fun has scaffolded the sessions for young people as they transition from elementary school to middle school, and middle school to high school, fostering goal setting, interpersonal skills, and perseverance, preparing young people for success.
Run4Fun’s after school program provides opportunities for youth to be active through its Run4Fun curriculum, promoting wellness in youth emotionally, physically, and socially. Run4Fun partners with community based organizations, schools and communities to bring our program to youth after-school to the communities of New York City. Our current partners are NIA Community Service Network, including schools, MS 443 and I.S. 609. In addition, we partner with The Children's School, Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, and Poly Prep. We also partner with Heartshare to bring our program to the McKinley Beacon Program at I.S. 259. Run4Fun also has age group sessions in our flag ship location, Prospect Park as well as Owl’s Head Park, Brooklyn.
Run4Fun’s In School Recess Program offers school administrators the opportunity for our program to tailor a safe and structured recess to their school, by providing the Run4Fun curriculum, facilitators, equipment, structured running and active games outdoor and indoor. Our program promotes an environment of fun and safety, team work and respect, increasing self-esteem and wellness.
Run4Fun has its NYC DOE Vendor License, enhancing our ability to go into schools during the school day.
