Mini Mermaid Running Club!

Tuesday I become a coach!  Yep a coach.  I need to think of better word than just Awesome to describe how awesome these second and third grades girls are doing so great.

Here is more about the running club:
The mini mermaid running club is a NEW program for young girls and will launch in Santa Cruz at Del Mar Elementary. The goal is to provide young girls in lower income elementary schools the opportunity to run, train, exercise and learn valuable lessons about their body, nutrition and life. The program will be FREE and is possible through a grant from 100+ Women who Care in Santa Cruz and personal donations. The goal is to provide the girls with training, coaching, educational materials and everything from shoes to shirts to get them ready for the mini mermaid run at Mountain View on April 17th.

  4. Wow. what a cool program. Is it just offered locally? I currently work with Girls on the Run, which is a similar style program, but it's not free, and I think a bit expensive since it's supposed to help girls of all economic ranges. Thanks for sharing this program;-)
