TEAM CMMD IN TRAINING
Team CMMD is helping to get out kids moving! After Broad Street, many of our teammates' children asked how they could get involved in a running team. Our answer was to create Team CMMD in Training, a series of weekly workouts designed to prepare yound runners ages 6-12 for running with Team CMMD. Workouts will culminate in running the Team CMMD This Run's Personal 5K or 1 Mile race. Runners will build a strong running foundation which they can use to participate in a future runs.
100 kids, 30 coaches
guest speakers & athletes
fundraising efforts organized by participating kids
KIDS 6-12 ENJOY:
An 8-week running camp meeting every Sunday where running coaches teach kids to build their athletic ability in preparation for running a one-mile race or 5K. Program swag, dri-fit shirt and registration in This Run's Personal included!
WHO IT HELPS
Our kids learn to run and be active, to volunteer in their community, and to understand cancer and its effects on local families. All program proceeds benefit financial assistance programs for local cancer families including the Karen Baker Scholarship Fund for local high school student touched by cancer.
Summer vacations are just beginning, but we are already looking forward to the fall and the start of the fourth season of Team CMMD in Training. The program will be back, bigger and better than ever, and we look forward to sharing our love of running and community involvement with the next generation.
