Jackson R-2 School District

We RUN Club

We RUN Club

The We RUN Club is a GIRLS ONLY running club.  We RUN means: Reach your goal, Unleash your potential and Never give up.
 
The mission is to educate and empower girls at an early age in order to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles. Additionally, they build cardio-respiratory endurance, increase muscular strength and endurance, and improve agility and flexibility. Workouts are self-paced and individually challenging and LOTS OF FUN!  The final goal of all clubs is to participate in the Jackson R2 Wellness Run at the end of the year to benefit the Backpack for Friday (BFF) program.
