The USATF Foundation is dedicated to bringing our Foundation community together with donors financially supporting elite and youth athletes while simultaneously giving the elite an opportunity to give back.  In exchange for their service to communities and the youths therein, the US elite track and field athletes receive a measure of the financial support they need to finance their Olympic aspirations.

New in 2020 the Foundation has migrated to a Virtual Run With US! platform.

With the Coronavirus pandemic limiting in person events we are forging a new path to continue inspiring kids.

  • Deployment of screened, trained, charismatic Track & Field Olympians and aspiring Olympians
  • Connect through schools primarily – elementary, middle & high school – but also YMCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs, Running Clubs, and Foundation ODP clubs
  • Activation potential of more than 300 athletes
  • All programs are 100% free to the schools or programs, but we will sometimes use a school incentive program to drive progress
  • Achievement in measured use of health curriculum and active engagement of the kids
