The SuperWorld Empowerment Running programs provide girls and boys ages 8-12 with developmentally appropriate and gender-specific sessions to support self-esteem, healthy relationships, and social action while training to complete a 5K (3.1 mile) running event. The program began with SuperGirls in 2007, and the SAVA Center added SuperBoys in 2011 to create SuperWorld. Each participant partners with an adult volunteer mentor who provides support throughout the program through participation in group sessions and running the 5K race. SuperWorld meets in the summer at community sites in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley. Contact our Prevention Education Manager for more information.
We ask that mentors attend at least three 2-hour summer training sessions where we play outdoor team building games and provide age appropriate prevention education. We have 2 – 3 sessions offered every day Monday-Friday in Fort Collins, Wellington, Loveland, and Greeley.
