Dear First Striders,
What a night! Congratulations to those who came out and braved the rain…you should be proud of yourselves! We are!
Remember that our workshops take place rain or shine…the only time we cancel is if there is lightning in the area.
On Wednesday, we formed our “animal” groups, putting those of similar ability in the same group. From now on, you’ll check in with your animal group mentors. These smaller groups can be fluid...if you’re pushing too much or not enough, you can move to the group with the right pace for you. Your mentors will help with this.
For those that weren’t able to attend, don’t worry. We’ll review the procedure next Wednesday and make sure you’re in the group that’s right for you. If you have not attended any class thus far, come to the stage and see Jane or another mentor to get your name tag.
Go Cheetah, Fox, Gazelle, Lynx, and Panther!

TOPIC: The Mental Health Benefits of Exercise - Julie Mullins, MA, LPC, CCTP-II, with The Center for Counseling & Wellness spoke about the mental health benefits of exercise. Research has shown that people who exercise regularly tend to be resistant to many mental illnesses and that exercise can help to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress and sleep disorders for example. The attached flyer, also located on our website under Website Topics, provides additional information.

Remember to do your homework - that is the key to your success! We’ll see you next Wednesday at 5:30 pm.
Jane and your Mentors
P.S. We hope that you’ll be able to attend all 12 workshops but, if you can’t, remember that you must attend 8 of 12 workshops to earn your graduation shirt. 3 workshops done, 9 to go!
