Lace up your running shoes for runs at any pace

Charleston, IL (WCIA)

We offer fun and interactive programs for children to promote health and exercise. Our Healthy Kids Educators bring games and lessons to classrooms (K-5) in our 7-county service area to promote healthy eating and exercise. We see over 5,000 children each month. Our dental program serves 66 schools in our 9 county service area. We provide free dental care for children 0-18 years old who are on the medical card or eligible for free/reduced lunch. We have a fun dental bus that visits schools and a fixed site in Mattoon.

I will be talking about our Races for All Paces event to be held May 14 on the campus of Eastern Illinois University. This is a family event where we encourage families to get out and be active together while having fun. There is a race for everyone. We have a half marathon, 10k, 5k, 1 mile fun run/walk, toddler trot and diaper dash! Profits are donated to our Healthy Kids and Dental programs.

We love the communities we serve and want to do everything we can to promote healthy lifestyle choices and bring smiles to children in our area. We have the most beautiful vehicles! We have the KickStart car that has already been featured on the show. We bring the vehicle to schools and do exercise stations around the vehicle. The KickStart Car will be present at Races for All Paces. Our dental bus features “Warren”, our mascot, and the kids love to get on board and get rid of the pain! Did you know that 1 in 8 children in our service area do not own a toothbrush? Thanks to Women Connected, a circle of donors at SBL, we provide each child with a free dental toothbrush kit.


Races at all paces on May 14 at the EIU.
