CPD Youth Fitness Club Up and Running

Want to get your sons and daughters off their keyboards, off their cellphones and into something fun and healthy?

Consider signing them up for the new youth running club led by officers from the Chicago Lawn (8th) Police District.

This club is designed to create a positive experience for our teens, and it will give them the opportunity to run with CPD officers.

The club meets at 9:00 a.m. every Saturday, at a different park. On Saturday, July 17, the club will meet at Wentworth Park, 57th and Narragansett. On Saturday, July 24, the club will meet Vittum Park, 5010 W. 50th St. On Saturday, July 31, the club will meet at Scottsdale Park, 4637 W. 83rd St.

Kids and officers will run a minimum of one mile per week, and the club is only open to kids ages 12-18. There is no membership fee and no minimum commitment. The idea is to give kids a taste of running and get them hooked on physical fitness.

If you have any questions, please contact Officer Jose Sepulveda at (312) 747-8724.
