Charm City Run Kids X-Country Series Today, September 17th

By | September 17, 2017

Healthy HedgiesHello all!

As a new initiative for the Hillcrest Healthy Hedgies we are hoping to promote local wellness activities in the Catonsville area that can motivate our students/children to understand the importance of healthy exercise, healthy eating, healthy sleep and healthy lifestyle.

Our first event that we would like to promote is this Sunday, the Charm City Run Kids X-country series at Catonsville High School. This is a race for girls and boys 12 and under. While top runners in each group win medals, the series is intended to be a fun, non-competitive, family-friendly introduction to running and all runners will “win” ribbons. Parents are welcome to run with their kids to encourage them and perhaps get a little exercise themselves!
