Public Allies New Mexico and Community Faithlinks have teamed up to implement GO FAR (Go Out For A Run) a comprehensive fitness program for children which promotes physical activity, healthy eating, and good character. The goal of the GO FAR program is to empower children to make healthy lifestyle choices which they may integrate and sustain throughout their entire life. Specifically, GO FAR teaches children to set and reach healthy goals along with the completion of a 5K road race.
Eleven Public Allies are implementing the 10 week curriculum at Los Ranchos Elementary to third, fourth, and fifth graders. The program will culminate with the 5K Run for the Zoo, May 6, 2012.
