Joining the Healthy Kids Team has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am so glad to have been able to provide such a positive, affordable and “open to all” community sport program to my area.”

[One of the best moments for me was] when I found out that one of my participants was born with hypotonia, a condition of low muscle tone, and that HKRS has given her a new hope since it was unknown if she’d ever be able to walk. Her mom told me, “HKRS is a definite confidence booster, which has strengthened her both physically and mentally!” Brought me to tears that something I am involved with had such an impact on an entire family.”

Through coaching my daughter’s elementary school running club and helping friends achieve their running goals, I’ve realized the joy that comes from sharing that passion with others…seeing those happy kids running, competing, smiling, trying hard, having fun and getting out there is so wonderful.”
