Swede Striders host Family Night

At Lake Helen on July 27, the Swede Striders Youth Running Club held a family night as the last get together of the summer. The evening consisted of a one mile jog where parents joined the children and either walked or jogged along. Afterwards prizes donated by area and out of town businesses were drawn for as everybody enjoyed watermelon.

Exactly what is “The Swede Strider” Youth running Club you may be asking yourself? Well, the purpose of the club is to provide the youth of Gothenburg with an opportunity to improve their fitness, learn proper running skills and form, build self-confidence, and learn to appreciate the sport of running and the benefits it provides. The club also provides the opportunity and information to the athletes to get them involved in local fun runs and competitions if they are interested.
