4RUN6 builds self-esteem, fitness levels for success in school

4RUN6 builds self-esteem, fitness levels for success in school

Shoes, check. Toques, check. Road Riders t-shirts, check. Healthy attitudes and new found crew love for running, CHECK, CHECK. Health + Wellness and Arts + Culture Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs at Central Commerce CI (CCC) has teamed up with the Academy of Lions Crossfit to participate in the 4RUN6 program. CCC started this community partnership last fall and is still growing strong - rain, wind, snow and the polar vortex is not slowing things down.

4RUN6 is a unique program that gets students out of the classroom and into the streets to build self-esteem through running and mentorship talks followed by creative team building sessions with professional graphic designers. The philosophy is: healthy lifestyles lead to healthy choices and greater success in school.

Students created their very own running crew, complete with a logo and t-shirt design - the Road Riders. Members of the Parkdale Road Runners and the Academy of Lions have lent support week after week, running with the group, offering advice with everything from running a business to personal training to social media branding.

The program has surpassed all expectations, said teacher Rebecca DiLeo. Students and community connectors have cultivated a new movement: one that combines artistic vision with physical activity. In all my years of teaching, I have never been part of something so engaging.

The best part of this program is arguably the tunnel of high fives once the morning run is completedclear evidence of engaged students celebrating their first accomplishment of many for the day ahead. 

 

Our Mission

the knowledge, skills, and values
