Event Charity - Kids Run RVA

By building a healthier, more vibrant place to live, work and play through Kids Run RVA, our children will learn healthy habits to last a lifetime.  Thousands of Richmond-area youth participate in the Sports Backers’ youth running programs each year and we are committed to growing the scope and capacity of these programs in order to fight the growing childhood obesity epidemic.  From providing free entries in our youth running events to basic necessities such as proper athletic shoes, Kids Run RVA places a special emphasis on supporting students at underserved schools in the Richmond region.  All of our programs instill a consistent habit of physical activity that will continue to flourish into adolescence and adulthood.
