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 2020 registration will begin Feb. 17th- March 9th! 

                        The June Bug Jam 5k is getting a MAKEOVER, Families Run Strong Teams will now participate in the              Memorial Run 5k at the Dover Foundation YMCA on May 30th, 2020!

Contact Krista Allen for any information on hosting a team.  All leaders need are walking/running feet, a coach's attitude and a happy heart.  All administration and planning is handled by the FRS Coordinator for you.

Contact your school to see if your school is hosting a team this year.  Homeschool families and church groups are welcome to create teams as well.  Please contact Krista Allen at if you are interested!!
