Grants Promote K-8 Running Programs
ING Run For Something Better School Awards Program
The ING Run For Something Better School Awards Program, in partnership with the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), seeks to increase physical activity in students and help fight childhood obesity nationwide through the creation of school-based running programs. The awards program will provide at least sixty grants of up to $2,500 to schools that want to establish a school-based running program, or expand an existing program, that targets grades K through 8 in public elementary or middle schools. Funded programs must have a commitment of at least 25 students in order to apply and be offered for at least eight weeks. The application deadline is May 15, 2013. Visit the NASPE website to review the grant guidelines and submit an online application.
