Saucony Run for Good Foundation Invites Applications for Youth Running Programs

The Saucony Run for Good Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children by helping to prevent and reduce childhood obesity.

According to the foundation, today's American youth are considered the most inactive in history and, as a result, the rate of obesity among U.S. children and teenagers has more than tripled over the past three decades.

To that end, Saucony is inviting proposals aimed at helping run down the childhood obesity epidemic. Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to community-based nonprofit organizations that initiate and support running programs for kids. Program participants must be 18 years of age or younger, and the foundation will prioritize programs that serve populations not traditionally exposed to running programs.

To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

See the Saucony Run for Good Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
