Pencils and Pens - Have Any?

Sometimes people have random pencils and pens around and they don't know what to do with them. They have enough, but they don't want to toss the old ones. Well the good news is, we will take any old pencils, pens, markers, etc. We can always use them around. Just send them to the office (either elementary or middle school) and we will find a use for them.

Free one-hour coach-led session for families with youth runners ages 6 to 10*
