Scooty's Run is a movement event to raise awareness for mental health and help raise donations for The Scooty Fund, a non-profit dedicated to advancing mental health culture in ways that enhance the well-being of young people. The race is in honor of The Scooty Fund's namesake Will "Scooty" Taylor and is meant to pay homage to his athletic legacy. For more information on The Scooty Fund and the work we do, please visit

This year, we will be offering different options to get moving. Like last year, there will be the opportunity to run/walk a 5k (3.1 miles). In addition, we will also have a special option in celebration of Will's 28th birthday this summer. Instead of the 5k, participants will also have the option to team up and run a 28 mile relay with friends (you can break it up in any amount you want).

Scooty's Run will be held virtually with options to meet up in-person in a few cities. If your city is not on this list and you'd like to host an in-person hub, please contact Caroline Cronin ( In-person options/routes will take place in:
