Due 10/31/2012: Grant Applications for $500-$1,000 towards running clubs
The mission of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) is to promote the sport of running through the development and growth of running clubs and running events throughout the country. The Kids Run the Nation Fund, an initiative of the RRCA, supports nonprofit organizations and schools in the U.S. that are interested in implementing or currently have a youth running program. Grants of $500 to $1,000 are provided to running clubs and other nonprofit organizations such as parent booster clubs, PTAs, etc. Elementary and middle schools that provide an organized after-school 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. The application deadline is October 31, 2012. Visit the RRCA website to submit an online application.
