Event Description

Jackson In Action is excited to offer our Laces to Leaders Youth Running Program at Lincoln Elementary this spring!

Thank you for your interest in the Laces to Leaders program! This 7-week program will focus on building self-confidence and positive self-image in young girls and boys, while taking part in a 5K run training program. This fun curriculum will teach girls and boys positive life concepts, inspire them to make healthy lifestyle choices, and empower them with the confidence to set and achieve powerful goals! By the end of the program, we hope to see strong, confident young girls and boys who are ready to face challenges and be positive leaders, while at the same time being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a 5K run with the support of their teammates and family members. Let the journey begin!
