We are thrilled to have received a grant for the Funhouse Commons Running Club! Our winter program starts kids out at 2 miles, and gets them up to 5k distance. We will then (with the help of this grant) take them to the mainland (we live on an island) to a 5k Race on St Patricks Day. We believe running is a truly great activity for a lifetime—and starting with kids is key.
THE FUNHOUSE COMMONS
The USA Track & Field Foundation provides a means to attract and guide funds to new and innovative track & field programs with an emphasis on providing opportunities for youth athletes, emerging elite athletes and distance training centers. The Foundation depends upon donations from its Board of Directors, major gifts and from generous fans of track & field.
Elite athletes are supported by the Foundation via monetary grants and participation in Run With US! (www.runwithus.org). Youth athletes are supported via monetary grants to youth clubs.
