The kids learn about sportsmanship (one little girl stopped in her tracks to help up another who had fallen), and not necessarily coming in first but doing the best they can. Paddy fell flat on his little face, but jumped up and busted out as fast as he could. I thought for sure he'd be heart broken. Instead he was thrilled, telling me, "Mom, I totally fell, but I got up and powered through and still came in 4th!" He realized what he was capable of.
Give your kids the chance to get out, get active, and learn a little something about themselves! And don't forget to include yourself in the fun. There are always volunteer positions. If you don't see your town on the list, just ask how you can bring HKRS to your neighborhood. If you have any questions or want to share your child's experience, I encourage you to comment below.
