Mission Statement

Run Free Texas is a running program designed to positively impact the lives of our community’s youth by promoting physical and mental wellness.

Description

Run Free Texas is excited to be growing our program in Round Rock Independent School District in the fall of 2017. We provide a running program that is designed to positively impact the lives of our community’s youth. Our program will introduce students to the physical and mental health benefits of being physically active, teach them life skills, and build a support system around them in order for them to succeed in our community. Over the course of 12 weeks, select students in fourth and fifth grade participate in a supportive and fun after-school program designed to teach them the benefits of being physically active and introduce positive habits that lead to healthy life choices. Throughout the program, students explore daily challenges and discuss how their own actions and thoughts can influence their own outcomes. Students learn new skills and strategies to help them navigate life experiences.

Run Free Texas promotes and models positive emotional support in a challenging yet fun environment that empowers students, builds confidence, fosters an attitude of achievement, and instills the belief that anything is possible when we put our minds to it.
