Why do we run

We run because kids are made to move! A kid in motion stays in motion for life, and that’s a good thing.

The first ten years of life are game-changing. These years provide a critical window for creating a lifelong commitment to physical activity. Research shows that kids need at least 60 minutes per day of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, but only 1 in 5 kids currently reaches that minimum. Physical inactivity and poor food choices cause all sorts of problems, including diabetes, problem behavior, low self-esteem, heart disease, mental health issues, liver disease, and poor school performance. An inactive childhood often leads to inactive adulthood.

Active kids do better. That’s why we’re committed to getting kids moving today, so they will be active for life.
