Who benefits from NYRR Team for Kids fundraising?

The money raised by Team for Kids members goes toward Rising New York Road Runners, NYRR's youth program and events platform, built to develop movement skills in kids through a mix of running and fitness activities. The program is designed to help kids build their confidence, their motivation, and their desire to be physically active for life. Rising New York Road Runners' curriculum is based on the latest athletic research on the concepts of physical literacy and long-term athlete development. Any person can achieve physical literacy; it just takes the right environment to develop the confidence and motivation needed for long-term success.
