Sep 5, 2014

Southern Arizona Roadrunners is proud to announce the 2014 Children’s Fitness Fund grant recipients.

Flowing Wells Fit Feet:  Flowing Wells students in the Fit Feet program meet with friends, families and teachers to run and walk.  Participants will log their miles.  The grant will allow students to attend community running events and will provide funding for fitness gear incentivizes.

Copper Point School Mileage Club:  This program will show students that running & walking can be part of a lifestyle that is achievable for all.  Every student will measure their steps/mileage with pedometers and stopwatches purchased using grant funds.  Club members will have a goal of 6 miles per week.  Students will celebrate their mileage by participating in the Thanksgiving Cross Country Classic Fun Run/Walk.

TUSD Elementary Cross Country:  Over 20 elementary schools across TUSD offer cross country programs where students train and participate in meets.  They will use the grant funding to construct a more permanent results board and to purchase materials to mark their courses.

John B. Wright Elementary Miler’s Club:  The Miler’s Club program will be a lunch hour activity for the entire school population. The grant funds will be used primarily to provide incentives and rewards for the children as they accomplish various pre-determined, age appropriate milestones.

Catalina Cross Country:  Catalina High School is a public high school that has a large population of refugee families and families living in poverty.  Grant funds will help support the Catalina Cross Country Team in attending local invitational meets so the team can run against competition and become familiar running in races with large numbers.

Safford K-8 PSPE:  The Personal Social Physical Education (PSPE) Club begins each weekly event with focused instruction in a classroom-meeting format and then moves outside where students are guided and encouraged to participate in various physical activities.  As part of the program, students also volunteer and participate in community fitness events.

Desert Sonora Elementary:  This high needs school brought back their physical education program two years ago and they have a very limited amount of usable equipment.  The grant will be used to purchase equipment that will allow students to enjoy being active so they will continue to do so in their daily lives.

Blair Charity Group:  In 2014 the Autism Society of Greater Tucson has partnered with the Blair Charity group to produce a new basketball inclusion camp for children with autism.  The clinics will focus on teaching basketball skills as well as building social, leadership and life skills.
