The LTSF Up & Running program is an afterschool running club for 4th-6th grade students that increases fitness awareness among students and parents. The mission is to challenge students to experience the benefits of goal-setting, character development, adult mentoring, and improved health by providing them with a life-changing experience. The ultimate goal is to train three days a week and compete in a 5K run or half marathon.
