Tulip Time is excited to be partnering with Total Trek Quest for the 2014 Tulip Time Run! A program through Pathways of Michigan, Total trek Quest provides after school programming for young boys to promote healthy, active lifestyles as well as, substance abuse prevention education.
The TTQ program starts each semester with the goal of training for a 5K race. With over 250 participants, Tulip Time is thrilled to help these students meet their goal. To celebrate the coming race, three TTQ runners are excited to share some of their thoughts and experiences with the program!
My name is Isaac Trap. TTQ is cool! This is my first year on TTQ. I am in the third grade at Great Lakes Elementary. It is fun because we get to run down the halls of school and run outside for practice too. I like all the fun games we play to help us run better. I am excited about the Tulip Time race because its going to be so cool to run with my mom, dad, brother and all my new friends I made at TTQ. This will be my first race and I hope I can run the entire 5K without walking.
Hi my name is Josiah Trap. I am a 5th grader at Great Lakes Elementary School. This is my first year doing TTQ. I am happy I joined because I found out I love to run. They play fun running games and I got to make some new friends. I am excited about running the Tulip Time 5K. It will be my first race and I hope to run super fast!
Hi my name is Aric Gamez. I’m 9 and have been in TTQ for 2 years. I joined TTQ because I wanted to try something new and just to see if it was fun. I tried for awhile and I really liked it. They make it super fun. Also, I didn’t know they did a 5K until the middle of it, that’s why I joined it this year. Also I joined because of running. I love to run. That’s why I joined TTQ.
