The Health Chasers
Stearns Elementary School has a youth wellness team. They are working together to promote healthy choices and activities for our school community! With funds from a Fuel Up to Play Grant the team will be: Creating Displays, Delivering Smoothies, Preparing the Family Physical Activity Night, Special Recess Activities, and All-School Tasting Events!
Mighty Milers is a free New York Road Runners youth running program for kids of all fitness levels in pre-K through eighth grade. Participants run, skip, and jump together and accumulate miles over the course of the school year. As they reach milestones, they receive rewards from NYRR, including membership cards, T-shirts, medals, and more.
NYRR’s mission is to help and inspire people through running, and Mighty Milers is designed to simply get kids active and excited about moving.
In addition to producing world-class events like the TCS New York City Marathon, NYRR is one of the largest providers of free youth fitness programming in the country, serving more than 215,000 youth in over 1,000 schools and community centers nationwide. Learn more at nyrr.org/youth-and-schools.
