Summer Youth Program

This six-week program stesses personal improvement for kids age 4 through 16.  Held for six consecutive Wednesdays from the first of June through July each year, it attracts more than 100 youngsters for running and walking events (from 200 meters to 3 miles) and field events.

CTC annually awards $500 scholarships to one male and female from each local high school.  To be considered for the scholarships, students must be involved in either track & field or cross country and be an active member of CTC where he/she has volunteered in various running/walking events.  The scholarships are funded by club memberships, club-sponsored events and private donations.  The club also awards scholarships to University of Missouri-Columbia exercise science students.
