Girls on the Run Looks for New Recruits

Girls on the Run Looks for New Recruits

A program designed to improve the overall health of girls in our community is looking for more children to participate.

Thursday coaches with Girls on the Run will meet with interested parents to talk about the program. The meeting will be from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas Donald W. Reynolds Clubhouse at Robindale Road and Eastern Avenue.

Girls on the Run provides girls with an education in a healthy lifestyle. Like the name suggests the girls participate in running events but that is only part of what they do. Coaches also talk to them about eating healthy, making good choices and improving body image. The idea is to give pre-teen girls the skills they need to stay healthy their whole lives. The whole program culminates in a 5 kilometer run. 

Consolidated Registration Date for Classes, Programs

Consolidated Registration Date for Classes, Programs

Registration for City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department fall classes, events and programs opens at 5 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 15. People may register online, by mail, using a City of Henderson self-serve kiosk located at City Hall, Black Mountain Recreation Center, and Henderson Multigenerational Center, or in person at any recreation center. Early registration is recommended as many classes fill up quickly.

“Previously we had different registration dates depending on the method of enrollment,” said Kim Becker, Communications & Marketing supervisor, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “While more than 95 percent of our patrons register online, there are some who don’t have a credit or debit card or don’t have online access so they must register by mail or in person. Having a single start date for all registration methods now ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to sign up for the programs they want.”

Residents are invited to stop by during open swim hours at all City of Henderson pools. Regular daily admission ($1-$3 per person) applies.

For all ages, the event includes lifesaving demonstrations, information about classes and lifeguard training, and question-and-answer sessions with the City’s lifeguard team.
