It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults. — Frederick Douglas
Omaha Kids Can Run is a locally owned and operated run club for kids. It’s not just about running, though. We teach our kids empowerment by using a growth mindset.
Our program uses the DashStrom Run Club Curriculum, founded and created by Cristina Ramirez. When she developed the program in her community, she implemented the concepts from Dr. Carol Dweck’s book, Mindset. While doing this, she noticed kids spoke differently about themselves. Parents and teachers noticed!
Ramirez also noticed that kids learned to set goals, to view disappointment as a tool, and to be resilient and moldable. She said they believe in themselves. “They are light years ahead of where I was at that age.”
So, imagine that we could set our kids up for success even earlier in life, by introducing the “growth mindset” to them when they are still young!
Our principles are built on this. We are excited to help your child grow, and develop running skills along the way!
