Impact Stories

Up & Running

The Up & Running program is offered each semester and is open to all students (of all ability levels) from 4th grade up. The mission of Up & Running is to challenge students to experience the benefits of goal-setting, character development, adult mentoring, and improved health by providing them with a truly life-changing experience. The ultimate goal is to train and compete in a 5K. As one student said, “I really enjoyed Up & Running because it taught me how to become a healthier person. It was also really fun to jog with my friends while getting exercise.”

Over the years, the Up & Running program has impacted many students. Last year as she ran across the Geist Half finish line into her mother’s arms, a young Up & Running student cried, “I did it! I never thought I could, but I did. I wonder what else I can do?”
