How powerful do you feel when you conquer a goal so daunting, you weren’t sure you could do it? Well, that’s exactly what our FAB 5 KM Youth Girls Challenge is all about! Empowering and inspiring youth girls to dream big, live big.
Our FAB 5 KM Youth Girls Challenge is an innovative 12 week running program that challenges youth girls in grades 6, 7 and 8 to train for and complete a 5 km run. Our programs are free of charge and take participants through a 12 week journey of goal setting, hard work, self discovery, and finally, goal realization as they train to complete their 5 km run.
Our program runs annually from April to the end of June. During these 12 weeks, participants meet once a week with our volunteer coaches to train, play, learn, build important life skills, and form positive and supportive relationships with each other.
Participants finish our program full of pride, confidence and most importantly, armed with a goal-setting framework they can use to pursue any future goal, and an appreciation for running that will keep them fueled for life.
