Our sponsor partner, Saucony, supports the Run4Good Foundation, which exists to empower the human spirit, with every stride, on every run, and in every community.

Children today are constantly faced with unhealthy eating options and sedentary lifestyles. Offering programs to teach them healthy habits has never been more important, but often these programs don't get the funding or support they need. The Saucony Run For Good Foundation aims to change that.

To date, The Saucony Run For Good Foundation has donated over $1 million to causes aimed at keeping kids healthy. This September, for National Childhood Obesity Awareness month, let's join together and Run For Good. Our next active, happy and strong generation depends on us.
