Team Unbreakable – $2,000 (Seed Grant)
Improving Youth Mental Health Through Team Unbreakable Running Program
The Team Unbreakable running program is a fun, non-competitive program for mental health with a curriculum that includes life hacks for mindfulness, nutrition, stretching and more. The program involves a twice-weekly hands-on running session with students that lasts 10-12 weeks. Before their non-competitive training runs begin, participants are taught about wellness issues such as the importance of nutrition, setting smart goals, stress reduction, motivation, improving focus, mindfulness, mental wellness, creating a balanced life, injury prevention, proper equipment to use and stretching exercises. Participants are given a running log, to make note of their mood changes based on their efforts.
