The Kids’ Run Club, brought to you by Ontario Doctors, is a free downloadable program that supports children and youth (Grades 1-12) to get active, have fun – and run!
The Kids’ Run Club is for all abilities - prior running experience is not required of coaches or students. Easy-to-use materials, including a Coach’s Guide and Participant’s Guide, provide information to lead a successful run club that builds skills and supports students in setting and fulfilling goals, including participating in a fun run. To help motivate and encourage students, the program includes swag items to give out as incentives or prizes.
Participating schools are invited to request a doctor visit to participate in a run or facilitate a presentation with students about the importance of health and physical activity.
