Healthy Kids Running Series 2023

Who we are:

  • A national, inclusive, and fun youth running program
  • Led by dedicated, local coordinators
  • Where all kids celebrate their success AND
  • Develop an active healthy lifestyle with local and national support from sponsors including Lafayette Insurance, Harrison Club Kiwanis, Sheila Klinker State Representative, Musselman's, Giant, USATF Foundation, and RunDoyen

What we do:

  • We engage communities and families by providing an inclusive youth running experience, inspiring kids to believe in themselves and lead an active healthy lifestyle.
  • We offer a fun, inclusive hour-long race event that is focused on the kids, benefits our families, and creates meaningful relationships in our communities.

Our Beliefs:

  • We believe in fun. We believe in an active, healthier generation of kids. Part of active lifestyle is getting out from behind screens and playing outside. Whether it's running or another outdoor activity, we want to get kids moving.
  • We believe that sports, particularly running, teaches lifelong values. The challenge of running and racing builds a foundation for confidence and accomplishment. It espouses the values of effort, perseverance, persistence, sportsmanship, independence and grit. Together, these inherent challenges combined with the learned ability to overcome those challenges builds self-esteem.
  • We believe the growth of our mission and program will yield a healthier generation of active kids. 
  • We believe in family and community.
  • We believe that building each other up and supporting one another, at our races and beyond, is empowering. Supporting others and treating others the way they want to be treated is paramount.
