Following up on the success of the Yankton Girls on the Run program, beginning next month, Yankton United Way is launching a similar program for third grade boys called Let Me Run and volunteers are needed to help make it a success.
Executive Director Lauren Hansen says she found being a Girls On The Run coach to be a rewarding experience.
Hansen says Let Me Run is a seven week after school program for boys that teaches self-esteem, the importance of healthy relationships, and the value of an active lifestyle.
Hansen says volunteers are needed to help these young people achieve their goals.
Hansen says people interested in volunteering to help with either the Girls On The Run or Let Me Run programs should contact Yankton United Way for more information.
