Marathon Jr. Event Charity

Kids Run RVA

Kids Run RVA is an initiative of the Sports Backers that reaches thousands of young people across our region and gets them moving on a regular basis.

With programs for all ages, Kids Run RVA has a particular emphasis on outreach to under-served neighborhoods, where opportunities for physical activity are often limited.  Establishing healthy habits early in life is critical to the long-term physical, emotional, and social development of all youth.

Money raised through the Whole Foods Market Marathon Jr. will help fund grants to establish run/walk clubs at schools throughout the Richmond region, which could include support to help schools put on their own running events as well as need-based support to help cover expenses to attend events like this one!

Visit Kids Run RVA to learn more about our programs, which include a free training guide for the Whole Foods Market Marathon Jr., and consider donating to help us expand our reach.
