The ING Run For Something Better School Awards Program, in partnership with the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), 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 $3,500 to elementary or middle schools that want to establish a school-based running program, or expand an existing program. 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, 2014. Visit the AAHPERD website to review the grant guidelines and submit an online application.
