I CAN Run

Looking for volunteers

What is I Can Run?

I Can Run is a group for boys and girls to inspire them to be self-confident, healthy, and discover their potential to solve problems and reach their goals. By providing fun games, team building activities and running, students will learn that there is nothing they can't do.


What does a volunteer do?

A volunteer is a coach who will train small teams of boys or girls through a curriculum covering team work, goal setting, understanding ourselves and running games. Coaches and teams meet twice a week for 10 weeks with a goal of completing a 5K race at the conclusion of the program. Meetings will begin in March and will meet twice a week after school from 3-4:30 pm.
