The Settlement Home Run Club, along with volunteers from the Junior League of Austin, ran in the Jingle Bell Run 5K on Sunday. Despite the chilly temperatures and rainy weather, the runners hit their stride as they cruised through the 5K.
Members of the Junior League of Austin meet weekly at The Settlement Home for run workouts and fun bonding through exercise. The Settlement Home received a grant from the Junior League of Austin for the Run Club.
The goal of the Run Club is to promote health and physical fitness through running and exercise. Running serves as an outlet for stress, as well as a bonding experience that can be fun and motivating. The Run Club aims to establish a lifelong healthy lifestyle for our girls and staff.
