Dear STRIDE Community:

The safety of our athletes, volunteers and community is STRIDE’s top priority. We know you have expectations for STRIDE to be proactive as a community leader in making healthy decisions.  After much deliberation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the fact that the World Health
Organization has declared Pandemic condition of health emergency, we have decided to take action based on informed decision-making.

We have made the hard decision to SUSPEND ALL our Sport programs until further notice in order to maintain a safe environment, due to the large number of families who congregate together from different regions for programs. Additionally, a large number of our STRIDE constituents may have compromised immune systems and therefore at higher risk for contracting the Coronavirus (COVID 19) virus.

We are a COMMUNITY and a FAMILY!  With this in mind, we know you look to STRIDE for resources and education, stay tuned!  We will be sending weekly messages for ideas to remain healthy and active including educational resources for you to continue skill development in your sport, and ideas for family involvement in activity to remain engaged in exercise.

Should you have questions, please feel free to contact me. We need to work together as a community/family to get through this crisis quickly.

10th Annual Strides 4 STRIDE 5k/2k Run, Walk ‘n Roll

The 5K held at Jennings Landing was a big success and a fit tribute to STRIDE athletes and their accomplishments, our mission to make sports in the Capital Region more diverse and inclusive, and all of the families, friends, and corporate teams who partner with us to change lives!

A big thank you to this year’s sponsors who made the event possible and brought us a long way in our journey to keep all of STRIDE’s programs fully-funded! Please be sure to give them your business if the opportunity arises!
