Season starts March 16th
Total Trek Quest (TTQ) is a running-based substance abuse prevention program for boys in 3rd-5th grade. Teams train for a 5k and through games and activities learn about goal setting and achieving, peer refusal skills, how to create pro-social habits, and the truth about substances such as tobacco and alcohol through.
TTQ started in Ottawa County in 2005 and has served over 6,000 boys since. Over the years, TTQ grew into four more counties: Muskegon, Allegan, Kent, and Newaygo. Teams meet at their local elementary schools twice a week for 90 minutes after school. The program runs for 9 weeks in the Fall and Spring. Each team consists of at least 5 boys and 2 trained and CPR/First Aid-certified coaches.
TTQ is looking for 3rd-5th grade boys and coaches of any running experience and gender for the Spring 2020 season. The cost of the program is $45 per participant; we offer scholarships with no questions asked. Participating schools in Newaygo County are: Daisy Brook, Newaygo, Hesperia, Grant, and White Cloud Elementary schools, pending enough coaches and participants.
Our final 5k event will be the Challenge Inspire Achieve (CIA) 5k Race in Newaygo on May 16th! This race will be open to the public to support Arbor Circle and TTQ. Volunteer and sponsorship opportunities are available. Stay tuned for more details.
