The Total Trek Quest (TTQ) program is ready to go this spring and we’re excited to bring fun, movement, and interactive learning to 3rd-5th grade boys in Newaygo county. TTQ offers boys in 3rd-5th grade a high-energy after-school program that incorporates training for a 5K with a curriculum that focuses on developing positive peer relationships, working toward individual goals, making healthy choices, and resisting peer pressure. TTQ has been offered in Newaygo county since 2018 and is a homegrown Michigan initiative, originating in Ottawa County in 2005.
Since the pandemic began, we have worked hard to modify and adapt TTQ so that it still offers our participants connection, activity, movement, and learning while following COVID-19 safety guidelines. We have 2 programming options: an all virtual program, which will consist of two weekly hour-long virtual practices, and a hybrid program, which will have one virtual and one in-person practice each week. The options for in-person practices will be Branstrom Park in Fremont on Wednesdays and Riverfront Park in Newaygo on Thursdays. These in-person practices will be from 4:15 to 5:45 and will be held totally outdoors, following all COVID safety guidelines including wearing masks at all times except while running, maintaining social distancing, and using hand sanitizer several times during practice.
Our spring season begins the week of April 12 and ends the week of June 12 with a 5k event. The program also includes a family focused kick off event; we have hosted several online events that have offered families a fun way to interact virtually. More information will be available for both the kickoff event and the 5K in the near future.
