Imagine if childhood obesity didn’t threaten the health of so many children across America. Imagine if we could give our nation’s children a way to get moving and a reason to get excited about physical activity …
We can and we are! ING Run For Something Better is helping kids learn that exercise is fun and rewarding. Through our free school-based running fitness programs, ING Run For Something Better challenges children to get active, set goals and start a lifetime habit of physical activity. Each program is capped off with a fun running event involving the school or even the larger community.
There are two ways to support ING Run For Something Better programs. Donate to the cause, or join our fundraising team and become a member of the Orange Laces Nation.
Want to make a positive difference in the lives of kids in your town? We provide a minimum of 50 grants annually (up to $2,500 to each school) to establish school-based running programs or expand existing ones. Applications for the 2014-2015 school year will open in December, 2013.
