Thank you for supporting your daughter’s interest in our FAB Girls 5K Challenge Program (grades 6-8). The goal of our program are two-fold: (i) to encourage youth girls to become more physically active and engage in healthy living, and (ii) to help develop goal setting skills that can be used to achieve any future goal. Our ultimate goal is to inspire youth girls to ‘dream big, live big’ by providing them with the skills and the confidence to live an empowered life.
Our programs are free and run from March to June each year. FAB Girls and volunteer coaches meet once a week for 90 minutes. Each 90-minute session includes a meet and greet and ice breaker, warm up, running drills, games, cool down, and snack and goal setting discussion. Additionally, throughout the 12 weeks FAB Girls and coaches have the opportunity to participate in 3-4 running events.
Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, we will be launching our 2021 FAB Girls 5K Challenge Program virtually via Zoom on the same day and at the same time our in-person program would normally occur. We hope to transition to in-person during the spring, if/when public health guidelines change.
In anticipation of transition to in-person programming, we have reduced capacity at each location to from 20 to 8 FAB girls and 2 coaches, for a maximum of 10 people at each location and 80 FAB girls in total. We expect in-person programming will be 100% outdoors with access to an indoor washroom. If we are able to transition to an in-person program, we will communicate all details and policies to parents/guardians two weeks in advance of the change.

It is our goal to ensure you receive all of the information you need to know about the FAB program and the activities the FAB Girls are involved in so they will get the most enjoyment from their FAB experience.
The following is an overview of the program and events
Over 12 weeks, from March to June, FAB Girls will meet for 90 minutes each week with volunteer coaches virtually via zoom. Please Note: Due to COVID-19 impacts we are starting our program virtually and if we are able will transition to an in-person program.
FAB girls can look forward to another year of building friendships, positivity, and strength during your 12-week journey with us.
If we are able to transition to in-person, FAB parents will be sent an email with details and all our COVID policies two weeks in advance of the transition occurring.
If we transition to in-person, depending on the weather, most sessions will be held outside even on cold, hot, or rainy days; please ensure your FAB Girl arrives with a water bottle wearing running shoes and comfortable, weather appropriate clothing.
