Team YV Hoop Love will be hoop-walking the Youth Villages 5K! Hoop-walking involves walking while spinning the hoop anywhere on your body. Don’t worry, you won’t get disqualified for dropping your hoop and the only rules are to have fun and cheer on the other walkers, especially the kids.
In addition to our awesome 5K hoop-walking skills, many of us also volunteer at Youth Villages residential programs teaching the girls and boys how to hoop and make their own hoops to keep. Hooping teaches the kids a healthy way to get exercise, reduce stress, develop coping skills, and improve their self-confidence. Learn more about our volunteer program.
