Marathon Jr. Event Charity

Kids Run RVA

Playing comes natural to kids! Kids Run RVA, an initiative of Sports Backers, reaches thousands of young people across our region working to promote physical activity and encourage kids to get moving more.

With programs for all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, Kids Run RVA provides training opportunities through school-based run clubs and virtual programming. Kids Run RVA believes establishing healthy habits early in life is critical to the long-term physical, emotional, and social development of all youth.

Money raised through 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 includes the Fall Fit Club, and consider donating to help us expand our reach.
