Help Us Support Brevard County Students!

In our efforts to encourage health among Brevard County youth, Running Zone Foundation hosts a FREE program, Space Coast Countdown to Fitness and Final Mile, each year for Brevard County elementary and middle school students. With their "Commanders" (teachers) leading the way, students run or walk 25.2 miles over the course of 10 weeks and receive a prize for every 5 miles they complete. All participating schools attend Space Coast Final Mile and run the last mile of the "marathon" together. 

This year's program (each spring) we had 2,491 students register for the 10-week Space Coast Countdown to Fitness program! Running Zone Foundation provides all t-shirts, school banners, milestone prizes, finisher medals and times the event at no cost to students. Please help us continue the program and encourage Brevard County youth to develop healthy lifestyles.
