At Trails Momentum, a wilderness adventure program for young adults, students put together a capstone project that demonstrates their personal growth. This May, one student used the capstone project as an opportunity to orchestrate a 5K run on campus, getting the whole Momentum community involved.
“The whole point of the 5K run was to help push people outside of their comfort zones and feel vulnerable to change,” said the student. “This is a huge part of the program and I wanted to include that in my Capstone project.”
This student worked with a staff member on campus to brainstorm ideas for his project. Before training for this 5K, he had never participated in a running event.
“It was really important to me to get others in the campus community involved in the 5K,” comments the student. “A 5K run is just three miles, which is something I thought everyone on campus would be able to do. For the month leading up to the event, I was really excited for the day, not just for myself but for everyone involved. We were all experiencing something new and different. I was really happy to see everyone putting effort in and making the most out of it. It was a really rewarding experience.”
