Funds raised by Team for Kids members support NYRR Youth Programs. Through school-based programs, free youth events, and a collection of digital resources, NYRR Youth Programs bring free running and fitness programs to students across the country.
Team for Kids funds help support programs for more than 200,000 children in more than 700 schools and community centers nationwide.
Since 2002, Team for Kids members have raised more than $40 million dollars.
Funding helps pay for training for teachers and coaches, most of whom are volunteers, program and practice supplies, and student incentives.
For most of these kids, running with an NYRR program is their only opportunity to get exercise or play sports. NYRR Youth Programs have been recognized by Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign as a leader in the fight against childhood obesity and health issues.
