Cleveland County YMCA

Families Run STrong

The Dover Foundation YMCA has launched a new program to reach more students in Cleveland County!  Research continues to support and prove the age old understanding that healthy and strong families create healthy and strong communities

In January of 2018 we launched our new program for 3rd - 8th students Families Run Strong.  These running teams equip families with the opportunities to grow healthy together. These families and teams will set a goal of completing one of the Cleveland County Family Association YMCA 5k races.  Registration fee of $25 per season covers the materials for weekly team practices with a volunteer coach, t-shirt and race registration for the 5k.  Families set goals to complete 15 Healthy Habits over the 12 week season and can earn a discounted race registration with their completed Healthy Habits.  Family members also have the opportunity to join their student for training periodically throughout the season!

                                                                                   Spring 2019  has begun!

Families and Students are gearing up for the June Bug Jam 5k on June 1, 2019

Families as you finish your Healthy Habits Form please turn them into your coach to receive your code for a DISCOUNTED race registration. 

  Students on Families Run Strong teams do not need to register again.

Shirts and race bags for the students will be distributed the day before the race through your coaches.

SEE YOU and your WHOLE FAMILY on JUNE 1, 2019 at 8:30am for the JUNE BUG JAM 5k Walk/Run.


We would love for your school, church or program to host a team Spring 2019.  Please reach out to us if you are interested!
