Run for Fun is an outdoor after school program that focuses on play through field games. Kids work on speed, agility and fitness while enjoying games such as capture the flag, chaos tag, gaga ball and dodgeball. Run for Fun welcomes children of all ages and athletic abilities and emphasizes good sportsmanship and positivity. Our staff is compassionate, spirited and values making personal connections with the kids. We welcome you to have your kid(s) experience a free trial to see for yourself what makes Run for Fun special. Run for Fun has been serving the Fairmeadow community for 13 years and we hope to revive the program on campus this Spring!   More information link.   If you are interested please sign your child up here now Registration link
