Youth

You’re never too young to make healthy choices!

You’re never too young to learn how to make healthier choices, and the Foundation helps children in our area get the tools they need to make those choices. We do that through supporting programs like Girls on the Run, in-class educational sessions, family programming and scholarships for students looking to pursue careers in the wellness professions.

Girls on the Run

As part of its mission and commitment to wellness initiatives, LCHWF has helped to support Girls on the Run of Columbia Valley for several years, and Spring 2022 was another inspiring event. GOTR is a local chapter of a national organization focused on improving the lives of girls in 3rd-8th grades.

This after-school program incorporates running to facilitate lessons in self-esteem, positive decision-making, teamwork and involvement in one’s community. The goal of the program is to give girls the tools to become strong, confident members of their community that make the choices that positively affect their social, physical and mental selves. At each lesson, the girls run and train for a 5k which they complete at the end of the program. For more information, visit their website at GOTRColumbiaValley.org
