Sports Backers Youth Programs

Sports Backers invests in the future of active living in our region through our youth programs such as Kids On The Move and the Scholar-Athlete program. From the youngest kids getting an opportunity to be a part of a fitness club, reaping the socio-emotional benefits while moving more, to those on their way to adulthood and applying to college, Sports Backers is passionate about supporting Richmond region youth. We do this by providing the resources they need to be successful, whether that be a pair of running shoes for a child in need, covering the cost of bus transportation for a run club to attend one of our signature events, or providing a scholarship to a promising student-athlete. Your donation makes it possible for us to support the most important part of our community – our kids. They are the future and we know that by investing in them and instilling healthy habits now, it benefits us all.

$100 – Scholarship contribution

$50 – Running shoes for 1 child
