Fit for Sound to Narrows

School Program Information - Ages 5-12

Every child has an “athlete” inside. Training for Fit for Sound to Narrows—and then completing that event surrounded by the support of classmates, coaches, parents and hundreds of cheering fans—can be the launching point for a child to discover their inner athlete!
