In 2007, through a generous gift from David and Sharlee Cotter in memory of Hank and Nancy Taylor, the RRCA developed the Kids Run the Nation Fund
to assists running clubs, events, and schools interested in implementing or currently hosting youth running programs. This small grant program is funded by
restricted contributions from members, individuals, foundations, and corporations. 100% of the money donated is restricted to this grant fund and no portion of contributions to the Kids Run the Nation Fund are used to cover administrative expenses. The RRCA"�s goal is to raise and grant over $20,000+ annually to youth programs around the country. The demand for small grants to establish youth running programs is great. Your contribution of $500 or more provides a grant to a deserving youth program.
