By Staff | Jun 7, 2024

SHARC — Summer Health Agility Running Camp — will be held July 15-18 from 8-11 a.m. at Bishop Verot High School in Fort Myers.

Mackenzie De Lisle, a standout cross country runner and track and field performer for Bishop Verot who recently won the FHSAA Class 2A championship in the 1,600-meter run and earned a runner-up finish in the Class 2A state cross country championship in November, is back to help run the camp. Her former teammate, Kyle Thomas, started the camp as part of a school project and decided to keep SHARC going.

The SHARC camp is partnered with and sponsored by the Fort Myers Track Club, a local 501 (c) (3) organization that helps raise funds for local charities and awards college scholarships to local high school athletes and volunteers.

The camp is designed to promote fitness and health for the youth running community. In addition, camp volunteers and leaders aim to spread the love of running in the youth of Southwest Florida.

All proceeds from the camp are donated to the Fort Myers Track Club.

The camp, which is open to youngsters kindergarten through 5th grade, will include daily stretching, conditioning, strength and core flexibility techniques; relay racing and team building exercises; running sprinting drills; and fun.

The cost is $75 (cash or with checks payable to the Fort Myers Track Club). Camp fees include a T-shirt and a goody bag. This is an elite training camp and with no refunds.

In-person registration will held Wednesday, June 12, at Fleet Feet at 13499 S. Cleveland Ave., Suite 209, Fort Myers.

Bishop Verot High School is at 5598 Sunrise Drive, Fort Myers. SHARC will be held at the football stadium/track.
