The "joy of movement"
Take...The First Step Club (#TTFS)
Welcome! We are a non-profit club supporting and encouraging walkers and runners of all levels. Our goal is to facilitate a healthy lifestyle by providing instruction, camaraderie, and resources. We sponsor events that create opportunities for fitness education. Our past programs involve raising funds for major charities such as Miles for Moffitt, Shriners Hospitals for Children-Tampa and others.
From 2014-2016, TTFS Club organized various Miles for Minds 5k and 1 mile Fun Run events to celebrate the "joy of movement" in the north Tampa area.
