ING Announces Grants Program for School-Based Running Programs
Deadline: June 1, 2009

Global financial institution ING and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education have launched the ING Run For Something Better School Awards Program. The ING Run For Something Better program is a fundraising campaign that supports community and school-based youth running programs to help fight childhood obesity and introduce young people to the benefits of running.

The new awards program will provide fifty grants of $2,000 each to U.S. public schools that desire to establish a school-based running program or expand an existing one. The grant awards are available in all states to public elementary or middle schools whose running programs target fifth- through eighth-grade students. Schools must implement a minimum of an eight-week running program with a culminating event by December 31, 2009.

Program guidelines and applications are available at the Run For Something Better Web site.
