BGCW and Cleveland Clinic Partner Together for Healthy Strides

Since the beginning of September, our Club Members have been able to participate in our Healthy Strides program – encouraging them to take care of their health. In partnership with this program, BGCW has partnered with Cleveland Clinic to provide experts on topics such as water intake, personal hygiene, sugar consumption, and goal setting. Health professionals and BGCW staff lead Members in walking or running club each Friday. Members have run or walked 650 miles since the beginning of this program.

Our Club Members have been striving to complete the goal of exercising 30 times at BGCW between September 1 and October 31. So far, 20 kids are on track to complete this task. Thanks to the support of the Cleveland Clinic, Members who complete their goal will receive special incentive prizes to encourage this healthy behavior to continue.

Boys & Girls Club of Wooster schedules recreation time each day from 5:15 PM – 6:00 PM with a variety of activities planned by staff. If you would like more information on our programs, feel free to contact us – 330.439.9629.
