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. 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 grant applications to help run down the childhood obesity epidemic. Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to community nonprofit organizations that promote running and fitness programs for children. Program participants must be 18 or younger, and the foundation will prioritize programs that serve populations not traditionally exposed to running programs.

Applicants must be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code to be eligible.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Saucony Run For Good Foundation website.

Deadline: June 15, 2023
