Project Fit, the after school running program offered by Fleet Feet Sports is expanding to two more schools for the 2014-2015 school year because of a donation made by Jeff Moreno,DPT of Precision Physical Therapy of the proceeds from his summer lecture series.
"This program is so very important to us" explains Tina Coillot of Fleet Feet Sports. "It is a vehicle to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles to a large number of youth in our county". The program lasts about 8 weeks and children at local elementary schools get a chance to participate if fun activities that make them run a little further each week and then get a free entry into a local race as a culmination event for the program.
"We are very proud of the job that our volunteer coaches, parents, and school leaders are able to accomplish" says Russ Coillot of Fleet Feet Sports. "Being able to see these young folks have so much fun while getting some exercise is great".
