running clubThe Keane Foundation has worked with the Wethersfield Park and Recreation Department, the Wethersfield Elementary Schools and the Central Connecticut Health District to a create a Running Club in each of the five elementary schools.

The students meet one day a week after school for five weeks leading up to the Mikey's Place 5K on October 15th.


RUNNING CLUBS have the benefit of 5K FUN!

The Keane Foundation in collaboration with Wethersfield Parks and Recreation again brought Spring and Fall Running Clubs to all five Wethersfield Elementary Schools for children in Grades 3-6. The program encourages children of all running abilities to develop their endurance, set goals, and promote self-esteem.  Children progress from their current level to completing a 5K (3.1 miles).  

Fall 2017's Running Clubs will start on September 11,  preparing for the Mikey's Place 5K on October 15 .... registration forms will be available at Wethersfield Parks and Recreation website, or in person at the Recreation Offices at Town Hall or at the Community Center. Sign up early as the program starts right after school starts!
