Summary: Grants promote youth running programs. The RRCA promotes the sport of running through the development and growth of running clubs and running events. The Kids Run the Nation Fund supports nonprofit organizations and schools in the U.S. that are interested in implementing or currently have a youth running program. Elementary and middle schools that provide an organized afterschool running program are also eligible to apply. Since the goal of the grant program is to have kids running at least once a week for multiple weeks, funded youth running programs should be more than just a one-time event.
